Agency for writers

Transforming Words Into Action

As one of the most active independent training initiative in South Africa, The Writing Studio has been presenting workshops and courses in screenwriting and filmmaking throughout South Africa during the past 19 years with the aim of developing the craft of writers and filmmakers.
The 19 years saw the birth of many new, original scripts that echo the unique voice of South African writers, with stories reflecting specific cultures, experiences and histories that embrace universal qualities.

Without an audience the creative act is pointless.

In order to reach an audience and potential investors/ producers we have to develop the scripts that have been completed or are in development.

It has never been a more fruitful time to be a storyteller in South Africa.

The time is ripe to develop the scripts and turn words into professional drafts that will inspire storymakers.

It is the aim of The Write Agency to:

MOTIVATE, SUPPORT and ASSIST writers in
completing a successful draft of a script

DEVELOP unformatted, unstructured and dull drafts
into exciting, professional and inspirational material

SUPPORT the needs of storymakers looking for product

SUPPLY storymakers with production effective scripts

INTRODUCE local and international audiences to South African product

INTRODUCE investors to local product and writing talent

EMPOWER writers with the write skills to to write the stories they want to write

The Reading and Editing of Screenplays and Manuscripts

It could mean the end of your story and your career as a writer if you hand poorly written and undeveloped projects over to producers, directors, publishers or potential investors. The Write Agency will give you the guarantee that your writing works or highlight problem areas that need to be reworked.
