From July 12 to July 14, 2023, at the prestigious Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), this three-day event is set to revolutionise how music is written and produced.

Calling all women, non-binary, and transgender music makers! The Women Of Music Production Perth (WOMPP) is set to present the highly anticipated WOMPP Writers Camp, a unique opportunity for artists to unleash their creativity and connect with industry professionals.

The WOMPP Writers Camp is open to talented individuals aged 18 and above with a background in songwriting, music production, and composition. This inclusive approach ensures that all artists, regardless of gender identity, can participate and contribute to this groundbreaking event. The camp will welcome nine exceptional artists from across Australia, seven hailing from Western Australia and two traveling from interstate (Victoria and New South Wales).

Three acclaimed artists have been enlisted as mentors to guide and inspire the participants: Stella Donnelly, Jaguar Jonze, and Sparrows.
