Emerging Writers Group

The Emerging Writers Group is an initiative aimed specifically at emerging playwrights, with the objective of supporting professional development and expanding the skill sets, artistic vision and networks of the group.

The group of four emerging writers meet regularly throughout the year-long program (May 2019 to May 2020) and receive mentorship from STC’s Literary Manager and Resident Artists, including the Patrick White Playwrights Fellow and Associate Director. The group attend all of STC’s productions, company runs of STC shows and take part in workshops with STC artists, as well as have opportunities to discuss with mentors the work they see and create. 

Submissions for the 2019 Emerging Writers Group are now closed.

The group will be announced at an event in early May. Please note that STC’s decision is final and that no correspondence or discussion will be entered into. We regret that we are unable to provide individual feedback to individual submissions.
