Swedish Centre for Dramatic Writing

The Swedish Centre for Dramatic Writing, (in Swedish: Centrum för dramatik), assembles 300 members, all professional playwrights, screenwriters and dramatic translators, writing for the stage, television, radio, film and new media platforms. The organisation was founded by members together with The Writers Guild of Sweden in 2005. Operations started in 2008.

Examples of projects and activities:

  • Fifteen screenwriters pitched for German TV/film producers at the Swedish embassy in Berlin. The project was developed together with the Swedish EURES office.
  • Supplying amateur theatre groups with professional playwrights in a project on female violence and conflicts.
  • Intense work with further training for playwrights and screenwriters: courses, exchange of experiences, networking. Project partner for an ESF funded further training project.
  • Developing project partner in "Stockholm Film Academy", which teaches school children/college students how to plan and write for the screen.
  • Contact forum, also building a directory of presentations of screenwriters/playwrights/dramatic translators.
