Melbourne Theatre Company Playwright in Residence Callout
In 2018, Melbourne Theatre Company is offering 3 positions as Writers-in-Residence as part of our NEXT STAGE Writers’ Program.
Applications for the three 2018 Residencies are NOW OPEN.
Across five years, MTC will have writer-in-residence opportunities for up to 15 writers who have a background in playwriting and would benefit from specific experience of, and writing for, a major company’s mainstage.
These writers will be resident at MTC for up to three years, receiving an annual stipend, office resources, company support, regular meetings with the Artistic team and integration with all aspects of MTC’s operations including the programming and production decision-making processes. In the first year of residencies the writers will not be obliged to write a full play, unless they wish to do so.
Residencies will be available by application only.
