Emerging Writers' Group

The STC Emerging Writers’ Group is an initiative aimed specifically at emerging playwrights. Now in its second year, the Emerging Writer’s Group aims to encourage the next generation of Australian playwrights, supporting their professional development, expanding skill sets and helping them discover and hone their own distinctive voices.

Emme Hoy, Julian Larnach, Moreblessing Maturure and Disapol Savetsila meet regularly throughout the year-long program and will be mentored by STC’s Artistic Director, Literary Manager, Patrick White Playwrights’ Fellow and resident directors. The group also attend STC productions, company runs and take part in workshops with STC artists, as well as have opportunities to discuss work they see and their own artistic practice. All participants also have the opportunity to develop a commission pitch for STC programming consideration.
