Professional screenwriters who believe that it takes a local village to grow nationally recognised talent.
Screenwriters WA is committed to the care and feeding of the current and next generation of WA screenwriters. We believe that local talent can be nationally competitive and that it’s critically important to our local industry that we have WA writers writing WA stories in WA. Our mission is to help make that happen through dynamic mentoring that encompasses a variety of writing experiences (workshops, rooms, Q&As, mentorships, etc.).
