I joined the Writers' Union because it is a 'Union.' That is, it is an organization that responds to its membership and provides a forum for us to express and debate common concerns. It has been important to me, for example, to collectively consider issues such as the appropriation of voice, the representation of writers of colour, and the protection of the creative community.
