Queensland writers share in $160,000 to develop scripts as Screen Queensland’s Writers’ Room Program returns for a second year. I also returned to mentor the five successful applicants in this year’s program: Duncan Kennedy (HELL’S ISLAND), Andrew Macdonald (GOLDEN), Jacqueline Cook (ESCAPE FROM HOLZMINDEN) and writing team Candice Deere and Mark Deere (LET’S SING: THERE’S ZOMBIES OUTSIDE).
Arts Minister Rachel Nolan announced,
This is a remarkable opportunity for established and emerging talent to develop their scripts with the professional advice, support and financial backing of Screen Queensland.
Each project will receive $40,000 through the Writers’ Room, which allows the writers to devote their time and energy to developing their ideas into film scripts.”
