50 is the magic number

The Writers' Guild of Great Britain is celebrating its 50th anniversary on Wednesday 13th May 2009 and, to commemorate this momentous occasion, we are offering 50 people the chance to join the Guild on its 50th anniversary for just £50.

This offer applies to Full members, who currently pay a minimum of £150 per annum, and Candidate members who pay £100. The offer applies to a new member's first year of membership only.

To be one of the lucky 50, call the Guild's Membership Team on 13th May 2009, between 9.30am and 5.30pm, on 01952 214 063 and quote 'WGGB Anniversary Offer'. You can pay your £50 over the telephone by credit or debit card and your welcome pack will be sent on within a few days.

Alternatively, members of the Writers' Guild of Great Britain Facebook Group can take advantage of the special offer by sending a Facebook message with their name and contact details to fellow group member Naomi MacDonald AND changing their status on 13th May to "Happy 50th Birthday to the Writers' Guild of Great Britain"

Please note that this special offer is only available on 13th May 2009.

We look forward to welcoming our 50 new members. What better way to celebrate our half-century?!

    50 new members that didn't notice the Society of Authors was cheaper to join.

  2. Thanks for that, Anonymous.

    If you'd like to know more about why it's worth joining the Guild, see the website:

    Make sure you call nice and early on the 13th ;-)

  3. The Society of Authors is a fine organisation, mainly for book writers, but the Writers' Guild negotiates the minimum term agreements (and/ or guidelines) for scripted material for television, radio, theatre, film, on-line drama and games. More importantly, the Guild protects its members in all these fields. I wouldn't leave home without it!
