Jessica Bellamy

I am a writer with a decade of theatre-making experience, a passion for arts education, and a personalised copywriting approach that inspires emotion and action. 


I am an experienced and award-winning playwright who has worked with a variety of companies across Australia, as well as in Singapore and the Philippines. Plays include Compass, Shabbat Dinner, Sprout, and Thick Beats for Good Girls. I have collaborated with Australian Theatre for Young People, Rock Surfers Theatre Company, Malthouse Theatre, Checkpoint Theatre, Griffin Theatre, and many more. I have written for large scale events and venues, including Kids’ Tennis Day, Convict Escapades at Hyde Park Barracks, and the ACT Department of Education’s School Spectacular.


For over ten years, I have worked with schools and community organisations running workshops, developing collaborative works, and tutoring students in playwriting fundamentals. I have run a 12-week education and mentoring course for Express Media, worked as Writer in Residence for Albert Park College, and devised a collaborative work with students at Monash University. I have tutored for Arts Centre Melbourne, NIDA Open Program, ATYP, and am a previous Artistic Director for Outback Theatre for Young People, where I ran multiple projects across several towns.


Does your business need a content writer who can create empathic, exciting copy? Searching for a writer with a playwright’s understanding of tone, and an immediate familiarity with your company voice? Someone who can dabble between serious communication and an occasional cheeky foray into humour? I am an experienced content marketer, adept in writing product descriptions, web pages, opinion editorials, newsletters, social media posts, explainer videos, and podcast scripts. I have written on food, travel, education, entertainment, and animal rights issues.
