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.
We are accepting script submissions for our upcoming lab sessions. To participate in the lab, send us your script and a short bio about yourself and your work to: FEMScriptLab@gmail.com. We accept scripts of all forms and genres (features, shorts, TV, documentary, animation).

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.
Throughout the year FEM Script Lab holds special events such as Screenwriting Masterclasses, Industry Panel Discussions and Networking Events.
