Why I Love the National Writers Union

A barracuda that writers need:

Dear NWU Member:

We need your help with a publisher who is refusing to pay his writers for their work.

Between September 2010 and February 2011, InnoVision Health Media published 13 articles by nine members of the National Writers Union in Natural Solutions magazine. While Natural Solutions magazine commissioned, accepted and published the articles, its publisher, Dick Benson, has yet to pay most of these writers for their work.

Although Mr. Benson finally responded to messages from the NWU on April 26, 2011, when he sent an email saying, “We have paid many of these and we are expecting to pay the remaining invoices shortly,” only one member, who was owed $350, has actually received payment.

Since then, he has been silent. Benson still owes the remaining eight writers a collective total of $11,510.12. Obviously, it is unacceptable for Dick Benson to continue to publish Natural Solutions and solicit advertising dollars while several of his writers are waiting for payments that are long overdue.

This is where you come in. If you do not approve of Dick Benson’s continued refusal to pay your fellow NWU members, please let him know by emailing the following message to him:

Subject: Pay The Writers!

Dear Mr. Benson:

I am appalled that you are refusing to pay members of the National Writers Union (UAW Local 1981) for their articles that you published in Natural Solutions.

Your delay in paying these writers is unacceptable.I implore you to do the right thing and pay them today!

Your name
[Greggory W. Morris]
