Roadmap's Days of Giving - DAY 3 - presented by The Writers Lab

We are pleased to have our friends at The Writers Lab as our final partner for our days of giving event.

In the spirit of this joyous and creative holiday season, three members of The Writers Lab Team will read one script chosen at random from our Days of Giving entrants.  The Writers Lab Team will give a 30 minute 3-on-1 mentoring session to this writer, including.  

  • Script Notes, Q&A, industry advice. 
  • In person in NYC or by phone conference.
  • Meeting to be scheduled during the last two weeks of January.
  • All writers eligible, regardless of age or gender.
  • The deadline for the submission of the winning script will be the end of December 2018.

Please consider submitting your work, and spread the word to your peers and colleagues.

The Writers  Lab is a four-day writers workshop that gives women screenwriters over the age of 40 the opportunity to work intensively on their feature film scripts with the support of established film professionals. Mentors and Writers engage in a rigorous process of intensive script development through one-on-one meetings, panel discussions, peer workshops, and at group meals.  Interactions are designed to inspire the artists; to prompt creative exploration; and, through revision, to cultivate first-rate cinematic stories.

Twelve scripts are chosen from all submissions through multiple rounds of judging.  Our 2019 Contest is open for submissions from Feb 1, 2019 through March 15, 2019 to all scripts written by women over 40.

Mission and Values

The Writers Lab is dedicated to developing narrative feature screenplays written by women over the age of 40. We feel it is critical to nurture the voices of mature women that have not been heard and are in danger of being lost entirely. We look forward to a new landscape where the female narrative is in equal proportion to the male narrative, and where shared stories strengthen our ties to one another and empower younger generations.  We are committed to female storytellers, yet we do not limit our search to stories about women. The Writers Lab seeks well crafted scripts, in all genres, exploring universal themes, using a full range of cinematic tools.
