With a team of partners, we will present a virtual 2-day lab intensive, during which Mentors and Writers 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-intensive development, support, and mentoring.
