After being one of 13 lucky applicants selected to take part, I recently graduated from the First Break WA program.

First Break is a unique professional development program designed to give talented, aspiring screenwriters the opportunity to gain in-demand and practical skills, develop their understanding of the industry, and build industry connections.  

The program consisted of three all-day Workshops that focused on Note-taking, Script Co-ordinating, and the Writers’ Room, and resulted in me being promoted to industry via the AWG Pathways website. The Pathways First Break tab is a permanent resource for industry looking for talented new writers who have valuable skills to offer in writers’ rooms.  

I had a great time undertaking this program. Fingers crossed this leads to awesome opportunities!
