The Writers Lab, the first program of its kind devoted exclusively to script development for woman-identifying writers over 40, in partnership with Untamed Stories, joins forces with
Cate Blanchett’s Dirty Films, in association with Birds’ Eye View, to bring its pioneering Lab
to the UK and Ireland.

 

The Writers Lab US is supported by Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman and Oprah Winfrey
and The Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation


TWL seeks to fight sexism and ageism in film and TV

Over 4 days, with 5 months of ongoing development support,
12 screenwriters (Residents of England, Northern Ireland,
Republic of Ireland, and Scotland, and Welsh nationals)
will be mentored by some of the industry’s best
writers and producers.

 

JUNE 10 – 13

With a team of partners, we presented a virtual 4-day lab, during which Mentors and Writers engaged in rigorous script development through one-on-one meetings, panel discussions, peer workshops, mock writers rooms and more, which will be followed by 5-months of post-lab development, support, and mentoring.
