WGAE Salons are member-led groups that work to build community, amplify the voices of underrepresented writers, provide practical career-building skills, celebrate the successes of our peers, and more.
Our current Salons include:
- The Asian American Writers Salon (via ActionNetwork.org)
- The Black Writers Salon (via ActionNetwork.org)
- The Career Longevity Salon (via ActionNetwork.org)
- The Disabled Writers Salon (via ActionNetwork.org)

Each Salon is open to all WGAE members who identify as part of that respective Salon’s community. Members are welcome to get involved with as many Salons as they would like. If you are interested in joining the mailing list for a Salon, please use the links above to add your name to that Salon’s list.
WGAE caucuses are network communities which promote and encourage the professional and artistic interests of writers working in existing and emerging fields of entertainment and news media, including indie film, documentary, new media, and animation. Caucuses are also another way the Guild works to broaden the pipeline of professional diverse writers.
Caucuses are composed of both members and non-members of the Guild. Caucuses serve as the device through which the Guild observes shifts and trends in the industry and their impact on professional writers. Caucuses also give non-members and members alike the opportunity to establish and foster important professional relationships, educate themselves on industry-specific issues, and develop vital creative and entrepreneurial skills alongside a community of their peers.
New caucus members are welcomed quarterly by invitation. To be considered, please complete the WGAE Caucus Application (PDF).
