Hedgebrook Screenwriters Lab

5 Screenwriters. 2 Mentors. 1 Week.

Hedgebrook’s Screenwriters Lab supports five screenwriters in developing their projects over a weeklong residency, with two mentors from the film industry, at our retreat on Whidbey Island, Washington. Through this program, Hedgebrook aims to support the creative process of a diverse group of screenwriters each year, and build a community that harnesses the power of film as a storytelling medium to change the cultural conversation.

Hedgebrook’s Screenwriters Lab is a natural extension of our quarter century commitment to raising women’s voices. Through residency programs that offer space and time to write, Master Classes and Salons designed to expand the writer’s craft, and events that build our global community of writers, we support, promote and advocate for equal voice in the cultural conversation.
