Fresh Ink is Australia’s most respected professional development program for emerging writers, run by Australian Theatre for Young People (atyp) and co-presented in the Northern Territory by Brown's Mart.

The initiative has been running for 14 years in varying forms and engages industry professionals to mentor our young writers. To date the program has supported 119 playwrights in Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Geelong, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

In 2022 there will be four young writers for performance (aged 18-26) from each participating state. Throughout the year they will produce two short works for the stage as well as attend regular meetings with their mentor to hone their skills and build their writing community.
