The Writers Guild of Ireland

Writers Guild of Ireland

The Writers Guild of Ireland (WGI) is the representative body in Ireland for writers for the stage, screen, radio and digital media.

By Writers For Writers

The Guild is an organisation run by writers for writers. We keep our members informed of news about the industry through our blog and fortnightly electronic newsletter, offer advice on contracts, organise talks and meetings, set up information sessions about issues of concern and lobby government agencies on matters pertaining to playwrights and screenwriters.

We also liaise with writers organisations around the world to monitor new developments in the industry across the global arena.

Full Membership of the Guild is available to any writer who has been contracted to write for payment in Ireland for the stage, screen, radio or digital media. To encourage new talent, we also have an Associate Membership grade open to aspiring writers.

Membership can be applied for and fees paid online.

The WGI is the writers’ voice: fighting for you, supporting, advising, and lobbying.
