QACI would like to congratulate Year 10 theatre student Suki Wallace for her recent success as the joint winner in this year's Queensland Theatre Company's Young Playwright Award.
The award is one of Australia's longest running annual playwriting competitions for young writers. Each year, high school aged writers from year 9 to year 12 are encouraged to submit an original play, which is then read by a panel of industry professionals. The play can be of any length or genre and a submission describing themselves and the inspiration for their work must accompany the play.
Suki exceptional joint-first place win will secure her dramaturgy sessions with Queensland Theatre and a publicly rehearsed reading of her work.
Congratulations Suki for sharing your gift of writing. We're certain your play is exceptional!
