WGSA Writing Workshop with Thandi Brewer

Thandi Brewer will be presenting this fabulous hands-on workshop on how to write a KICK-ASS pitch for writers and aspiring writers. This is how it's going to work:

Thandi is taking INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED writers through the whole fandango of what goes into writing a pitch.
Then FIFTEEN writers get to bring in their ideas, pitches, projects etc... and we are going to work through... reconstruct... polish, spit and buff through it!

Who is this workshop for?

FIFTEEN (15) Intermediate to Advanced writers who have pitches. (The first 15 who apply and pay up – R150.00)

INTERMEDIATE or ADVANCED writers may attend - you just need to pay in advance.

STUDENTS or BEGINNER writers may attend in an OBSERVER capacity. This means that for a reduced rate you may observe how writers deconstruct and workshop concepts. Unfortunately you may not participate. At the end there will be a 30 min Q&A session in which you can ask questions about process etc..


This is a FULL DAY workshop... and only light snacks will be provided.


If you would like your concept to be worked on: R150 / WGSA member or R300 for non-member

If you are attending: R100 / WGSA member or R200 for non-members

If you are a student or beginner writer (STUDENT CARD needs to be provided) R20 / WGSA members or R50 / non-members

PLEASE contact Thea and BOOK your spot at Also please note for catering and administrative purposes YOU NEED TO PAY UPFRONT! Thea will also provide you with bank details.

This is a really great opportunity to work with a giant in our Television and Film Industry (and for students to see what goes into creating a great show)... DON'T LET IT PASS YOU BY!

The Workshop will take place on the 18th of June at AFDA, 41 Frost Avenue, Auckland Park, JHB, at 9h00
