The Writers Lab

01-Oct-2020 To 04-Oct-2020

Chester , United States

The Writers Lab is supported by Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman and is produced by New York Women in Film & Television, with co-founders Elizabeth Kaiden and Nitza Wilon.  It is presented in collaboration with the Writers Guild of America, East, with in-kind support from The Black List, Falco Ink, Film Fatales, Relativity Ventures, Roadmap Writers, Stony Brook Manhattan Center for Creative Writing & Film, and Tribeca Film Institute. 

The Writers Lab selects 12 promising writers each year, from a competitive pool of submissions, to work with accomplished women mentors from the film industry. Participants spend 4 days at a retreat outside New York City working on their screenplays and their craft in one-on-one sessions with mentors, and gaining valuable tools and information in panels and workshops to achieve success for their projects and their careers.
