The National Writers Union is more than just another writers’ organization. It is the only labor union that represents freelance writers working in all genres, formats, and mediums. Through its parent union, The United Auto Workers, the National Writers Union is a member of the American Federation of Labor Organizations.
As freelancers we may value our autonomy, but we are united by 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, a technical or business writer, a screenwriter or blogger – whether you write poetry or proposals – the NWU is already working to improve your professional life.
