Across five years, MTC will have writer-in-residence opportunities for up to 15 writers who have a background in playwriting and would benefit from specific experience of, and writing for, a major company’s mainstage.
These writers will be resident at MTC for up to three years, receiving an annual stipend, office resources, company support, regular meetings with the Artistic team and integration with all aspects of MTC’s operations including the programming and production decision-making processes. In the first year of residencies the writers will not be obliged to write a full play, unless they wish to do so.
Residencies will be available by application only. Applications for the three 2017 Residencies are now open at mtc.com.au/careers
