The Writers Action Group was founded by Roger Wolfson, former staff to four US Senators and writer for five TV series.  Together with Academy Award winning writers such as Callie Khouri (“Thelma and Louise”), Tom Schulman (“Dead Poets Society”) and political leaders such as former Congressman Steve Israel (a novelist and former chair of the DCCC), Writers Action has assembled some of America’s best storytellers with the express goal of helping Progressive candidates, causes, organizations, and businesses find their most compelling stories, express those stories authentically, and develop long-term, emotional relationships with large and diverse audiences.

We have worked with the some of the most prominent figures in progressive politics: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Chris Coons, Rosa De-Lauro, Ted Lieu, Joaquin Castro, and Adam Schiff. During the last election, we contributed to the Blue Wave, first by giving speeches on the art of storytelling to the entire Democratic Caucus in the U.S. Senate and House and to all Democratic Communication Directors. We then trained candidates for the DLCC, the PCCC, the NLC, and worked directly with the DNC, DSCC, and DCCC. Finally, we wrote speeches, crafted message, performed debate prep, and even held fundraisers for Doug Jones, Beto O’Rourke, Kara Eastman, Tracy Mitrano, Mary Gay Scanlon, Katie Hill, Deb Haaland, and Harley Rouda.

Including state, local, and national races, eighty percent of the candidates we helped, won.
