Programs

The Writers Guild Foundation has five key programs to help grow our community. Our programs aim to help us share and foster a love of writing in children, youth and adults. Please join us and lend your expertise!

Volunteer and Mentorship Program

We pair WGAW members with like-minded organizations who work with young people from underserved communities on literacy, writing and filmmaking. Organizations we currently work with include Young Storytellers, Ghetto Film School, Get Lit!, PEN in the Community, and more.

The Veterans Writing Project

Veterans are mentored by professional writers with a variety of backgrounds. Most are television writers or screenwriters, but we also invite journalists, poets, novelists and teachers.

Visiting Writers Program

Our Visiting Writers Program schedules writers to appear at colleges and universities locally and around the world.

The Writer Speaks: Oral Histories of Film and Television Writers

Over the years we have recorded interviews with over 60 prominent writers about their careers and about their working lives and practices.

Screenwriting Panels and Events

Throughout the year, the WGF hosts a variety of educational events for working and aspiring screenwriters and television writers, including Beyond Words (our WGA-nominated screenwriter panel) and Sublime Primetime (our WGA-nominated television writer panel), as well as many, many others.
