The Writers Lab programs nurture the voices
of women in their prime whose stories have
not been told. At our labs, writers work intensively on their features and pilots with
the support of established film professionals.
THE WRITERS LAB US
Since 2015 TWL has presented a yearly 4-day retreat where Mentors and Writers engage in a rigorous process of intensive script development through one-on-one meetings, panel discussions, peer workshops, and at informal gatherings. Interactions are designed to inspire the artists; to prompt creative exploration; and, through revision, to cultivate first-rate cinematic stories. In 2020 we presented our first virtual lab. This year, we hope to safely present our 7th retreat in-person, in October, welcoming both feature and pilot writers.
THE WRITERS LAB UK & IRELAND
The Writers Lab founders have joined forces with Untamed Stories to serve women and nonbinary writers over 40 who reside in England, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, and Scotland, as well as all Welsh nationals. With a team of partners, we will present a virtual 4-day lab this June, during which Mentors and Writers will engage in rigorous script development through one-on-one meetings, panel discussions, peer workshops, mock writers rooms and more, followed by 5-months of post-lab development, support and mentoring.
The Lab is presented in collaboration with the Writers Guild of America, East, with in-kind support from The Black List, Falco Ink, Film Fatales, Filmarket Hub, Final Draft, and Roadmap Writers.
