The Writers’ Guild of South Africa (WGSA) has announced that their award winning magazine is now available online.

From its inception in 2009 as a two page newsletter to its current 100 pages-plus incarnation, the WGSA Mag has grown to become one of the most widely-read digital industry publications in the country. Jam-packed with interviews and articles, which cover the interests of all the disciplines represented by WGSA, the magazine has turned into a major public relations tool for WGSA, bringing in new members and gaining readership at training institutions, broadcasters and at government level.

It is distributed free of charge to Writers’ Guild members and representatives of the Film and Television Industry, both locally and abroad. As WGSA is a non-profit and public benefit organisation, all contributions, from editorial control to local and international articles, are done on a voluntary basis with no payment.

After 14 issues, July marks the magazine’s first online edition and with it the WGSA’s commitment to continue to grow their readership to even greater numbers.

The success would not be possible without the contributions of the media and content providers and to them WGSA would like to say a big and heartfelt thank-you.

The magazine can be accessed at
