Zaity Salman

Zaity Salman was selected to take part in First NSW and successfully completed the program in June 2022.

Zaity is a screenwriter living and working on Gadigal land in Sydney, Australia. She completed a Bachelor of Film and Screen Media at Griffith Film School and is currently completing her final year of a Master of Screen: Arts (Screenwriting) at the Australian Film, Television and Radio School.

With a breadth of work that includes fantasy, comedy, sci-fi and period dramas, Zaity is passionate about writing for television and loves writing collaboratively to bring unique, complex and engaging stories to life.

When she isn’t writing, you can find Zaity trying to improve her (very poor) painting skills, exploring Sydney and buying her cat, Jasper, far too many toys.
