[from the WGGB Web site:]

The Writers' Guild of Great Britain was established in 1958;
its
mission, then as now, was to ensure that writers of all media are
properly represented. For nearly half a century we have been ensuring
that writers are properly paid and accredited. The nature of the media
industry may have changed but our central philosophy has remained the
same.

Writing is by nature a solitary business--but membership of the
Writers' Guild of Great Britain means that writers need not be
isolated. Together, writers form the strong organisation needed to
get a fair deal in today's increasingly competitive and ruthless
market. More than this, we offer a way in which writers can become
part of a community, the chance to swap stories about unscrupulous
producers and meet people you admire.
