WHAT’S EDGE SHORTS?
Short+Sweet Perth has teamed up with Edge Performance Writers to offer you a series of online playwriting workshops and script readings. The full program is designed so writers can develop their ten-minute scripts for Short+Sweet 2022 ready for it to be offered to directors, but you’re also welcome to attend to develop your general playwriting skills. It is a rare opportunity to learn from highly experienced theatre artists.

After the three workshops are two script readings: the first is for anyone developing a Short+Sweet script, the second is so Edge Performance Writers members can receive a second reading and feedback on their Short+Sweet script and also offer it to our invited directors to perform at Short+Sweet Perth 2022.

Directors are also invited to register their interest here to attend the Final Script Readings for your input and to get a first look at the plays being developed for the Short+Sweet 2022 festival.

WHO IS THIS FOR?
Anyone who is keen to write short-form theatre is encouraged to register.

Members of Edge Performance Writers are offered discounts, as are those currently without income.

Only Edge members are eligible for the final script readings in November, so if you are already committed to developing your script for next year, signing up as an Edge member (annual membership is $40 or $20 unwaged) will be an economic option for many of you!

Participants are welcome to apply for membership to Edge Performance Writers now or at any time during the program.

Get in touch if you have any questions or if you’d like to apply for one of our complimentary tickets for those without an income.

Warm regards,

Mike Wood and Therese Edmonds
