The Write Agency

Transforming Words Into Action

As one of the most active independent training initiatives in South Africa, The Writing Studio has been presenting workshops and courses in screenwriting and filmmaking throughout South Africa for the past 23 years with the aim of developing the craft of writers and filmmakers.

The 23 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.

Our Proud Graduates

Without an audience the creative act is pointless. In order to reach an audience and potential investors/producers/publishers, 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.

It is the aim of The Write Agency to:

completing a successful draft of a script

DEVELOP un-formatted, unstructured and dull drafts
into exciting, professional and inspirational material

SUPPORT the needs of storymakers looking for stories

SUPPLY storymakers with production-effective drafts

INTRODUCE local and international audiences to South African product

INTRODUCE investors to local product and writing talent

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

Reading, Editing & Polishing Of Stories

If you have completed the draft of a screenplay or short film, stageplay, or manuscript for a novel, it is vital to find out whether or not it works. 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 highlights problem areas that need to be reworked.

  • If you want your script or manuscript polished professionally, The Write Agency will turn your copy into an exciting and thrilling narrative.
