THE WRITER'S STRIKE IS IN FULL SWING!


The Strike is upon us and AWP fully supports the Writer's Guild of America! Now is a GREAT time to get educated on the WGA and other industry guilds! It's time to research WHY writers are striking and what the union does, then look into SAG-AFTRA, IATSE, Actor's Equity, Director's Guild and get to know your industry better!


Follow Writer's Guild of America West and Writer's Guild of America East to hear from the writers themselves!


The Entertainment Industry has slowed so now is the perfect opportunity to get yourself ready for the return of productions when the strike ends!


WRITER'S STRIKE TO DO LIST:

CELEBRATE WRITERS * NETWORK * TRAIN LIKE CRAZY


STAY CREATIVE ON YOUR OWN!

Yes, train professionally AND also:

  • Dissect a script or sides

  • Do self tapes to practice technique

  • Try a character outside your usual type

  • Have a game night

  • Play tag

  • Venmo your writer friend and say "Coffee on me!"

  • JUST BE TOGETHER WITH YOUR ARTISTIC COMMUNITY IN WHATEVER WAYS YOU CAN!
