Horror Writers Association Supports WGA Strike

Posted on November 15, 2007

Horror Writers AssociationThe Horror Writers Association (HWA) has issued the following statement in support of the WGA strike. The statement was posted on Dark Whispers, the HWA's official weblog.
The Horror Writers Association, on behalf of its writer members, stands in support of the Writers Guild of America strike in seeking appropriate compensation for writers when their work is distributed digitally, either via DVD or Internet downloads. Although HWA is not a union, it is an organization of writers that advocates for authors' rights. Writers Guild of America and its demands fall solidly into this category. All writers will be affected by the outcome of this strike, and we stand in solidarity, resisting those who seek to distribute our work on the Internet, DVD, or any format without fair compensation.
The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America also recently issued a statement in support of the ongoing writers' strike.
