International Markets

Writers’ Guild of South Africa: International Markets

The Writers’ Guild of South Africa is offering its MEMBERS the unique opportunity to attend international markets per year, where Writers can pitch their produced and unproduced works to international producers and networks with a view to either sell their work, option their work or gain development / production funding.

With the financial support of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI); flights, accommodation, promotional material – and the shipping thereof to the market, a WGSA Stand at the market, full access passes to all events at the market and training before the delegates attend the market, are all paid for.
