Welcome to the WGAW Start Button. In addition to working on your desktop it will also run on mobile devices. The Start Button will enable you to:

  • Inform the Guild when writers begin working on a step and when the draft is scheduled to be submitted
  • Enable follow-up when payment for your writing should be due
  • Give writers the opportunity to request assistance and advice if paid late or asked for free work

In this video, WGA board member John August walks you through how the Start Button works, and why members should make using it standard practice when beginning an assignment.
