The AWG’s greatest strength lies in our membership, which is rich in knowledge and energy and brings together writers across all levels of expertise. We are able to draw on this knowledge and energy to deliver a strong and diverse calendar of events for our members, including our regular members nights held across the country.
These members’ events are organised by the various State Committees and feature guest speakers from a range of disciplines speaking on diverse topics. These events have enhanced the evolution of writing groups, strengthened consultation with funding bodies and generally enriched the writing community.
The AWG’s program of writers’ events aims to inspire creative screenwriting and present stories and information on how success can be achieved. They provide a space for writers to meet and an informal forum for discussion, building and invigorating the screenwriting community.
The Australian Writers’ Guild is proud to sponsor events, festivals, awards and programs that recognise, promote, reward and celebrate the work of screen and stage writers. We are also the proud sponsor of Best Screenplay Awards for a number of festivals and competitions.
