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. 

Playwright

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.

Educator

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.

Copywriter

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.
