The Writers Lab
The Writers Lab is now accepting submissions for its six-month script development programme for features/pilots by women & non-binary screenwriters 40+ in the UK & Ireland.
Submissions of both Features and Pilots (both 1-hour and ½-hour) in English will be considered. The Writers Lab will select approximately 12 promising feature and pilot writers who, collectively, reflect the diversity of the populations across the UK and Ireland.
During the Virtual Intensive, Writers engage in rigorous script-development work through one-on-one meetings with Mentors, focused work in peer groups, panel discussions, and more. In the following 6 months of ongoing development and industry support, The Writers Lab guide writers through the revision process and offer development and market support with a team of partners, acclaimed screen industry leaders, our development team, and talented peers. The lab aims to build skills, confidence and community, and to prepare writers for collaborative work and market demands.
All selected participants will be issued a Stipend of £1,000 per participant.
The deadline for submissions is 30th May 2022.
