Welcome to Connect.

Here you’ll find a variety of brief articles that will help inform you on how writers are coping personally and professionally with the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. You’ll also get updates on important Guild matters and resources that can help you navigate through these times.

We’d like to hear from you about what kind of stories you’d like to see in Connect. Please send an email to Connect with your suggestions or comments.

Much like many of you, Guild staff is working remotely and will continue to provide offsite support to writers until we get official clearance to reopen WGAW headquarters.

We will come through this together.
