Research Guide

Resources & References for Writers

The WGA knows better than most that writing projects don’t just materialize out of thin air. Writers pour countless hours of research into their work in order to make their finished product as honest and accurate as possible. In order to ease this research process, the Guild has compiled this list of organizational and professional entities. Writers can use this list of contacts as a quick-reference guide.

The inclusion of an organization or entity on this list does not in and of itself indicate endorsement by or affiliation with the Guild.
