Writers Guild of America Strike Looms

THE WRITERS GUILD OF AMERICA IS A LABOR UNION – THAT’S AN ORGANIZED GROUP OF WORKERS FORMED TO PROTECT THEIR RIGHTS. AND THE WRITERS GUILD IS MADE UP OF THE PEOPLE WHO WRITE SOME OF OUR MOST POPULAR FILMS AND TELEVISION SHOWS. 

THE UNION SAYS IT NEEDS PAY RAISES FOR ITS WRITERS AND BETTER ASSISTANCE FOR HEALTHCARE, BUT NEGOTIATIONS WITH PRODUCERS AND STUDIO HEADS HAVE SO FAR BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL – AND A STRIKE IS LOOMING.

NOT EXACTLY THE HOLLYWOOD ENDING I WOULD HAVE WRITTEN!

BUT SPEAKING OF WRITING, THIS WEEK WE HAD STORIES ABOUT A FEW DIFFERENT WAYS WE EXPRESS OURSELVES WITH THE WRITTEN WORD, AND, IN THIS WEEK’S POLL, WE WANT TO KNOW: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE KIND OF WRITING? WE HAVE FOUR OPTIONS FOR YOU: JOURNALISM, POETRY, ESSAYS, OR CREATIVE WRITING. TO VOTE, JUST HEAD TO OUR WEBSITE AND CLICK THE POLL BUTTON!
