Playwriting Masterclass with Sven Swenson

One of Australia’s most prolific theatrewriters, and dubbed the ‘Bard of Brisbane’ by fellow playwright Michael Gow, Sven’s Swenson’s epic work Road to the She-Devil’s Salon, the inaugural winner of the Queensland Premier’s Drama Award and a Matilda Award for writing (Queensland Theatre Company, 2003).

Swenson believes most playwrights’ subconscious minds hold more viable plays than could possibly be written in their lifetime.

This intensive workshop helps find the portals that lead to the many things you didn’t even know you were burning to write about and helps you find your unique voice as a storyteller.
