The Writers Guild Foundation is the premier resource for emerging writers and movie and TV lovers in Hollywood. Boasting a busy calendar of high-value events and a vast, seemingly bottomless toolbox for writers, the Foundation is unmatched in its mission to promote and preserve the craft, history, and voices of screen storytelling.
Before joining the Writers Guild Foundation in 2013, Katie Buckland served as Executive Director of the California Women’s Law Center, a legal advocacy group targeting the civil rights of women and girls. Prior to working with nonprofits, Katie enjoyed a career in politics and government, serving on Bill Clinton’s presidential campaigns and the Democratic National Committee. As communications director for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office, she created the award-winning Neighborhood Prosecutor Project, which places prosecutors in neighborhoods to improve the quality of life in local communities. A licensed attorney, Katie also served as a domestic violence prosecutor for the City of Los Angeles.
