NZWG. By writers, for writers.
NZWG is the only dedicated voice for screenwriters in the policy-making space in Aotearoa New Zealand – this is where the legislation, policies, and funding decisions that impact how we make our living are designed and implemented.
As individuals there is no way for us to help shape this policy but as a united group we can contribute to this process, it's vital that we do. There is power in numbers and knowledge. United, we're stronger. Informed, we're smarter. Legally protected, we're richer.
Over the decades, NZWG has contributed significantly to the formulation of policy. Without this work, the needs and priorities of screenwriters would not be represented and the resulting policies would not reflect and further our interests. With the right financial investment, policy setting and supportive legislative framework, we can take our stories to the world.
