Writers’ chance to be heard

Busselton Dunsborough Times

Writers are invited to submit a short, original monologue or duologue about life in WA’s South West.

Organised by Western Edge Playwrights, South West Shorts was conceived in 2017 to foster relationships between Perth and South West writers while creating a platform for WA works.

A panel of judges whittle down the list of entries to the final six, with three to be from the South West and three from Perth.

They will then be invited to workshop their scripts in Dunsborough on March 25 before a final performance of all plays will take place at Rivendell Winery in Yallingup on March 26.

The audience will be invited to vote for the People’s Choice Award.

South West Short’s producer Therese Edmonds said she was keen to see creative energies emerge and to see what writers had to say about life in their region.

“Having your work read by professional actors in front of an audience is a valuable experience at any stage of your writing career,” she said.

“It’s also a rare chance for local and Perth writers to develop their work in a collaborative environment for an event they can attend the very next day.”

No age, experience or style restrictions apply.
