Emerging writers from all over the country are urged to apply to attend the two and a half-day training which will be conducted in various languages in the different provinces. We have limited space per class, so it would be important to apply as soon as possible.

Although the classes are sponsored i.e. FREE of charge. We do, however, require applicants to become a member (Candidate or Student) if they are not as yet.


Please do not let this prevent you from applying, instead, find out more about our membership.

The Writers Guild of South Africa (WGSA) in collaboration with the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture (DSAC) has developed a basic screenwriting course for emerging screenwriters, which has been translated into all South African official languages.

This after the WGSA conducted a Train the Trainer course for 20 professional screenwriters.  Ten of those trainers will be conducting the pilot training sessions across South Africa. The training schedule for October and November 2020 is as follows:
