The Writing Place - applications close 1 July 2019

Are you a writer (or do you know one) aged between 18 and 26, living outside of a capital city? Are you interested in performance or writing scripts? Do you want an opportunity to develop your craft and be mentored by some of our country’s top playwright’s?

If you answered yes to all questions, Writing Place is for you. Twenty emerging writers and performance makers will be selected to come together for one intensive weekend in Whyalla this September.

Mentored by playwrights Caleb Lewis, Finegan Kruckemeyer and Mary Anne Butler, each participant will write a monologue for teenage performers. The collection of scripts generated during the week will reflect the specific landscapes, experiences, relationships and attitudes of young people from regional Australia.

This is the first time South Australia will play host to the established residency program. Writing Place is inspired by and will run concurrently with Australian Theatre for Young People’s (ATYP) hugely successful “National Studio” that has run annually since 2008, developing high quality scripts from and for young Australians.

Applications now open | Applications close 1 July 2019 |Writing Place residency 3 - 11 Sept 2019


Writing Place is a joint project of Country Arts SA, Carclew and Australian Theatre for Young People and is supported by the Regional Arts Fund Strategic Initiatives.
