Archipelago Productions is proud to present the Tasmanian component of this national young playwrights program.


Applications for 2023 Announcement Coming Soon

Archipelago Productions, with Australian Theatre for Young People present The Fresh Ink program: a national young playwrights program.
This will be the second year of presenting this program, giving young Tasmanian writers the opportunity to work with an experienced mentor, and have their works read and seen by interstate producers and directors.

ATYP’s celebrated Fresh Ink National Mentoring Program for emerging writers aged 18-26 runs annually from April–December in selected states across Australia. The initiative has been running for 14 years in varying forms and engages industry professionals to mentor our young writers. To date, the program has supported 120 playwrights in Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Geelong, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Hobart.

Four young Tasmanian playwrights; Amelia Pond, Noah Casey, Mostafa Faraji and Milla Chaffer were selected to participate in the 2022 program and throughout the year they will produce two short works as well as attend regular meetings with their mentor, Belinda Bradley, to hone their skills and build their writing community.
