Writing Advice

 

There is a vibrant playwriting community across Australia that ATYP has the good fortune to tap into. Not only does ATYP present and develop theatre for young people, it also presents and develops theatre by young people 26 and under. In order to better support playwrights, we have been building a series of resources to guide playwrights and talk about the experience of being a writer.
