"Fans Support the Writers" Support Poster
A full-on Fans Support the Writers/fans4writers.com poster modelled after the original poster (see below) now is available for use. As our "Food for Thought" program kicks into high gear, you'll be seeing this one a lot.
"Fans Support the Writers" Fan FlyerModelled after the Support Poster above, this flyer is geared not towards supporting the writers while you're on the picket lines, but for handing out to other fans to make them aware of this effort.
fans4writers.com Support Poster
When fans of Joss Whedon sent pizza to the strike lines, they sent a poster with it. We've made the template for that poster available, with blank space for use by other fan communities. Please contact us if you plan to use this poster. It's a terrible thing, but sometimes people misuse such resources, or misrepresent an effort, because they haven't first contacted the source.
