Sunday, October 9, 3pm – National Writers Union
National Writers Union Meeting
The National Writers Union is the only labor union that represents freelance writers in all genres, formats, and media.
“As freelancers we may value our autonomy, but we are united in the fact that we work independently. We face the same challenges, file the same income tax forms, and often suffer the same frustrations. Whether you’re a journalist, a book author or a technical or business writer – whether you write poetry or proposals – the NWU is already working to improve your professional life.
With the combined strength of more than 1,500 members in 15 local chapters nationwide, and with the support of the United Automobile Workers (UAW), the NWU works to advance the economic and working conditions of writers. We do this by challenging the corporate media giants, lobbying Congress to pass legislation that protects the rights of writers, creating viable solutions to provide publishers fair alternatives to unfair practices, and educating and empowering our members.”
