The Master of Screenwriting is designed for those who have a desire to write audience-engaged stories for a visual medium and for people wishing to work as professional screenwriters.

Semester one is classroom-intensive and is an introduction to the many facets of screenwriting. You take part in ‘Storytelling Workshops’ which analyse the universal essentials of storytelling. You also attend lectures, classes and screenings dedicated to the craft of screenwriting and undertake intensive modules focusing on feature film and television writing.

Semester two focuses on writing a first draft of your major project. You develop your script with the assistance of script tutorials, feedback from your lecturer and peers, and a unique script development hothouse. During this semester you also gain skills in giving and receiving creative feedback on your scripts. A first draft feature screenplay, or a TV Bible plus episode(s) of a script, are the expected outcomes after first year.

In semester three you are expected to implement skills you have learned to focus on redrafting your major project as you complete a second or third draft. Script tutorials plus lecturer and peer feedback is maintained throughout. In this semester, you also learn about the Australian and international screenwriting landscape.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

  • Develop screenwriting skills for national and international screenwriting industries
  • Become confident with writing and rewriting screenplays
  • Grow concepts and ideas into screenplays using research methodology skills
  • Graduate with a third or final draft of a feature length screenplay or television bible and script.

The Master of Writing for Performance focuses on developing the skills and emerging aesthetic of the individual and collaborative writer for diverse forms of contemporary live performance. Read more

The Master of Writing for Performance focuses on developing the skills and emerging aesthetic of the individual and collaborative writer for diverse forms of contemporary live performance. It is unique in Australian theatre culture, focusing on the diversity of voices and cultures present in contemporary writing in Australia and overseas.

Through a combination of writing workshops, critical seminars and discussions you develop skills in writing for diverse contexts and live performance while gaining an understanding of the relationship between the playwright and the cultural contexts in which they write.

The program focuses on the development of a full length play, as well as four other smaller performance writing projects including: writing from improvisation with acting and directing students; writing for digital mediums; adaptation of existing texts; and writing for live art projects. The projects are supported by an analysis of dramaturgical principles and play structures based in character, dramatic action, conflict, dialogue, action and causal logic, as well as more experimental, non-linear writing based on post-dramatic concepts. At the end of the year, each writer presents a rehearsed presentation of a full-length play to industry and public.

The program welcomes applications from: writers, actors, directors, animateurs, theatre makers, designers and dramaturges, with moderate to extensive experience in performance writing.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

  • Be able to conceptualise, realise and present original writing for performance and/or performance oriented projects in diverse form
  • Evaluate, discriminate and make informed choices as part of writing practice within aesthetic domains
  • Collaborate with other theatre artists and diverse communities
  • Develop the skills of articulating the ideas and processes inherent in your creative work within the context of relevant artistic discourse and research.
