Toolkits: Regional Playwriting

What is playwriting? How do I structure a play? What’s a Dramaturg?

Express Media, in partnership with Carclew and Country Arts SA, are both proud and excited to present Toolkits: Regional Playwriting!

This brand-new series in a 12-week, step-by-step program brings together play theory, practical exercises, script study, group workshopping, and one-on-one mentorship to guide young regional writers through the ins and outs of playwriting. With live broadcasts looking at a new topic each fortnight, and feedback weeks in between, Toolkits is first and foremost a practical initiative.

Full details and application form are available on the Express Media website.

Applications Open: Saturday 23rd May 2020
Application Close: 5pm Monday AEST 29th June 2020

The Toolkits Regional Playwriting stream is open exclusively to those aged 30 and under, living in regional, rural and remote Australia. Priority will be given to applicants living in regional South Australia.

Carclew and Country Arts SA have been identifying and nurturing emerging regional playwrights through the development of Writing Place in 2019 and the publication of This Was Urgent Yesterday in April 2020. Our partnership with Express Media to deliver Toolkits: Regional Playwriting continues our investment in regional storytellers in 2020.
