Archive / Collection information

As the only collecting institution focused solely on the art, craft, and history of Hollywood writers and their labor union, the Writers Guild Foundation Library & Archive are vividlly relevant to the creative and business communities of Los Angeles. The holdings document a rich facet of Los Angeles culture in relation to the role of writers in the entertainment industry. The collections include Writers Guild of America historical materials, current and vintage produced and unproduced scripts, letters, periodicals, photographs, production materials, memorabilia, oral histories, and personal items pertaining to film, television, and radio writers. The non-profit Writers Guild Foundation strives to promote and preserve the work of writing for the screen, and to inspire and educate writers everywhere. In addition to the Shavelson-Webb Library & Archive, other  programs include a robust slate of educational events, the Military Veterans Writing Project, and a Visiting Writers program.
