Reel Sisters + BRIC Screenwriting Lab is a weekend-long course designed to give independent screenwriters the opportunity to work intensively on scripts for television, film and streaming platforms like OWN, Netflix and Amazon. Join a writers' boot camp devoted to developing risk-taking narratives and creating scripts with richly layered female characters. 

Writers will work in small groups and one-on-one with veteran writer/producer Valerie Woods was a Writer/Co-Executive Producer on Season 1 of the Disney+ series The Crossover. She also worked in the same position for the limited series The Big Cigar, coming soon to Apple TV+. Valerie is one of four Syd Field Screenwriting Method Instructors trained by Mr. Field. 

You will enjoy a weekend working in a supportive environment of professional producers, directors and screenwriters dedicated to helping you achieve your writing goals. This is a unique and valuable opportunity for you to revise key elements of your feature length or short film script and work on a dynamic elevator pitch.

Eligibility + Application: Writers must submit a synopsis (1 page maximum) and short sample of the screenplay (10 pages maximum) project they want to develop. At the end of the lab, several screenwriters will have an opportunity to showcase an excerpt of their work at a staged reading hosted by Reel Sisters and BRIC in the fall. Writing teams are welcome. 

Registration Fee: $225, plus Eventbrite Fees (includes application fee). Lab slots are limited so register in advance. If you are not accepted, you will receive a $200 refund (the application fee is non-refundable). You will be e-mailed a secure link to send your writing sample and synopsis shortly after you register.


The Scriptwriting Lab will culimate with an exciting staged reading of the scripts created during the Lab on Wed, Nov 1 from 6-8pm. RSVP below.
