Black Swan State Theatre Company's Emerging Writers' Group has been the hotbed for many successful plays, and has amongst its alumni Gita Bezard, Chris Isaacs, Tyler Jacob Jones, Frieda Lee, Joe Lui, Will O'Mahony, Zoe Pepper, Clare Testoni and Mararo Wangai.
Now Black Swan are on the hunt for four exciting emerging playwrights for their revamped Emerging Writer's Group 2018.
Each playwright will be offered a $2000 honorarium to write a first draft of a new play, access to dramaturg/mentor Jeffrey Jay Fowler, three workshops with professional actors and the potential of a professional public reading of their first draft.
The idea is to write a play with a cast of four or less that you can imagine being staged at Black Swan. Please note that this group has a four month turn around. It is a fast paced, high impact program.
