The Writers Guild of South Africa (WGSA) is pleased to announce the launch of a new website. “Our new streamlined site is finally live!” says Theoline Maphutha, WGSA Chairperson. “The first phase of many more exciting things to come.”

With the launch, comes the opening of submissions for the coveted WGSA Muse Awards for 2020. The WGSA Muse Awards recognize and reward outstanding writing in film, television, documentary, stage, radio, animation, and mobile/web series categories. An award for writers by writers. Launched in 2013, the awards are specifically for performance writers bestowed by their peers, shining a spotlight on the outstanding work of our members, who are often the unsung custodians of South Africa’s arts and culture.

The entry form is available on the WGSA website at
