Fans for Writers


There are many ways you can support the WGA strike, and Fans4Writers is here to act as a rallying point for all fans.

Whatever else you and your own fan community may want to do to support the writers during the strike, join the Fans4Writers Forum and help us build a cross-fandom campaign network.

Our goal is to ensure that our activism is as effective as possible. With so many different groups all wanting to do "something", it is very easy for those efforts to be duplicated and lost in the sea of support. The most important thing is that all this enthusiasm and goodwill not be wasted on futile activities.

Fans4Writers has joined forces with some of the most pro-active and effective groups in fandom to provide you with one location to find fan-driven efforts. The WGA also is developing ways you can support them and the strike.

Fans4Writers has organized our own efforts into four key areas, each with a specific purpose.

  • Morale Boosters. Keeping the WGA strikers motivated for the long haul.
  • Network Communications. Letting the studios and affiliates know that we are in support of the writers.
  • Advertiser Communications. Aiming to educate those with the driving power and gain their support.
  • Promotion. Spreading the word about the strike, through Web banners and icons, printable signs, postcards, t-shirts, and more.

We encourage you to take action to support the writers.

Be positive. Be enthusiastic. Be effective. "
