Send in your pencils!

This is a repost from Devin the Great. Love that it includes the addresses. Very handy!

I've done a little editing based on what I've read/heard about the types of write-in campaigns that work, plus a bit more of mailing you can do, at the end.



Support The WGA? Here’s How To Help...

Below, you will find the names and address of the major companies we are asking a fair deal from. If everyone would simply put an unsharpened pencil into an envelope and add this note: "UNLESS YOU CAN WRITE IT -- GIVE THE WRITERS A FAIR DEAL!" and send one to each name on the list, can you imagine the impact that would have?

Once again, know that the writers are deeply appreciative of you efforts and love you madly!

And for good measure, let's add the AMPTP too. I especially like what Fans4Writers.com had to say about the effectiveness of using a simple postcard.

Postcard Protest

We have seen many suggestions to send things to the studios, from nuts to pennies. One thing we have learned over years of fan campaigning is that these things get you noticed -- but often for the wrong reason.

We need the networks to take us seriously, because this is a serious issue. For that to happen, we cannot risk being seen as odd, quirky or easily dismissed.

The Fans4Writers Postcard Protest is an inexpensive way of showing the network in a tangible way that we support the writers.

Fans4Writers postcards are available here. Please be sure to include your full name, city, state and demographic age range. And don't forget to personalize it with a note about why you are supporting the strike -- you may even want to mention your favorite show. Just remember to keep it polite.

Send your postcard to:

Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers
15503 Ventura Boulevard
Encino, CA 91436

Kick ass, y'all!
