National Writers Union

If you write for love, if you write for money, if you write for both, join the National Writers Union/UAW 1981 (www.nwu.org).

If you live in New England, you’ll become part of our Boston Chapter (www.nwuboston.org), as well. When you have a contract to sign, you can get free advice on how to negotiate changes you want. If an employer fails to meet agreed-to conditions, the NWU will back you up.

The NWU speaks out on issues from copyright to affordable health care. You’ll receive monthly national and 6x a year local e-newsletters, and have an opportunity to participate in professional programs, advocacy on issues affecting writers, social-networking and avenues (kudos, website, annual book party) for promoting your work.  — Barbara Beckwith, NWU-Boston co-chair
