New Writing Lab for Female and Non-Binary Screenwriters Launched in Wales

SHIFFT Script Lab is a new writing lab for female and non-binary screenwriters in Wales.

It is designed as a place for screenwriters to share and receive feedback on work that is in development. It will provide actor, peer and mentor feedback in an environment that encourages innovation and creative risk-taking. The lab’s mission is to nurture writers, invest in female driven stories and promote women as creators of content.

SHIFT Script Lab is based on a format first created in Toronto, called FEM Script Lab, and is supported by Film Cymru Wales.

They accept scripts of all forms and genres (features, shorts, TV, documentary, etc).
