Work with leading WA Playwrights to hone your writing skills for theatre and performance.

“WriteNow gave me the confidence and knowledge to write for theatre.”

– Member

The WriteNow Program brings together eager WAYTCo members to work with professional Western Australian playwrights to develop their writing skills for theatre. Over the course of 8 weeks this program aims to empower young people to tell Western Australian stories from a youth perspective and build individual skills in storytelling, writing, performance, and character development.

Participating in this program also provides the opportunity to be selected as a writer for WA Youth Theatre Company’s famous 24HR Play Generator Program.

Past program tutors include leading industry professionals Andrew Sutherland, Hellie Turner, Sam Nerida & Zac James.

This course has wrapped up for 2021, but keep your eyes peeled for further iterations in 2022 and beyond!
