the only programme in the world devoted exclusively to script and career development for women and nonbinary writers 40+. You can apply from anywhere in the world for this Lab – just note that you have to get yourself to New York.

During the Lab intensive, Mentors and Writers engage in rigorous script development through one-on-one mentor meetings, small group and panel discussions, peer workshops, story rooms, and more. In the following months of ongoing development, writers are guided through the revision process and offered strategic advice and advocacy with the help of partners, industry leaders, the TWL development team, and talented peers.
