FEM SCRIPT LAB
FEM Script Lab is a writing lab for female and non-binary screenwriters in Toronto, held at The Theatre Centre. The lab is a place for screenwriters to share and receive feedback on work that is in development. We provide peer and mentor feedback and actor reading sessions in an environment that encourages innovation and creative risk-taking.
Our mission is to nurture writers and invest in female-driven stories. We aim to support writers during the creation process and create a community that offers programming for the promotion and viewing of female driven work.
If you’ve got any questions, feel free to contact us at: FEMScriptLab@gmail.com
SCRIPT LAB uses an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we encourage submissions from trans women and non-binary people. We aim to create a safe and welcoming environment for all screenwriters to share their stories.
Script Labs are held eight times throughout the year and are open to to any female-identifying screenwriter wishing to have their script workshopped. Each closed lab session begins with a professional actor reading followed by peer and mentor feedback and notes session.
