I often hear playwrights complain that they are not supported and that, despite their obvious talent, they can't break into the "scene". What?!
Melbourne finds so many ways to support and encourage writers. From La Mama to MKA, there are independent companies all over town who are screaming for good new writing and there are awards and prizes from our more formal and government funded institutions.
Tonight, the winners of the R E Ross Trust Playwrights Script Development Awards are celebrating at the State Library.
SM is especially thrilled to see that Jane Miller and Jane Montgomery Griffiths are among the four winners.
