“The course was uber inspiring – it’s like someone turned on a switch in my mind and BAM! There’s a stage musical and the spotlight is on me, writing. Dancers leap across a Scrabble-like floor, covered in words, clutching books at their chest. The whole thing is so well-rehearsed, like it’s been headlining on Broadway all. this. time! The Australian Writers’ Centre bought me a ticket to my own show and I haven’t stopped writing since! I sent off my first pitch within four days of completing the course. Bravo and thanks!”
