    The mission of the Writers Guild Foundation’s Veterans Writing Project is to identify emerging writers from United States military backgrounds and provide them with the tools and insights to nurture their passion for writing and successfully navigate the entertainment industry.

    We do this in two phases over a yearlong program: A weekend-long retreat, and monthly follow-up workshops and special events. Each military veteran is paired with WGA members. Our writer-mentors represent some of the most beloved movies and television series of the past and present and are committed to guiding the voices of the future.

    Upon completion of the program, qualified participants have the opportunity to pitch their finished screenplay to leading industry executives, managers, agents, and showrunners.

    100% of donations to this campaign support the Veterans Writing Project. Thank you for your support!
