Who is a Performance Writer?

A Performance Writer creates projects which are meant to be acted, sung or spoken out loud - in other words, performed. This includes not only screenwriters who work for film and television, but also playwrights, radio writers, lyricists, computer games creators, animation writers, audio description writers, radio and TV news writers and – would you believe, speech writers. If you are unsure if you are a performance writer, please contact the Guild for clarification.
