What's the deal with the Black List Feature Screenwriters Lab?


The Black List will invite six to eight promising non-professional writers identified by the Black List script evaluation service to a weeklong, intensive writers workshop in Los Angeles, CA from October 16-22, 2016.

The selection process will work like this:

On Thursday, September 1, 2016, up to fifteen writers will be invited, based on the strength of their scripts as evaluated by the Black List screenplay evaluation service, to submit a professional resume and one-page personal statement due on Thursday, September 8, 2016.  Additional statements will be requested from the writers in consideration for the Sloan and Brockman Fellowships. From those personal statements, Lab screenwriting mentors and the Black List will select six to eight writers to participate in the Lab.

Evaluations purchased before midnight on Saturday, August 6, 2016 will be guaranteed consideration.

Make a note of the September 1st deadline and don't miss your chance. We look forward to October and we hope to see you there!

Because our finalists are determined by examining all data about opted in scripts for site partnerships, we strongly advise purchasing at least one evaluation. In the event that the purchase of a single evaluation is cost prohibitive, please follow us on social media and the Black List blog where opportunities for free and discounted evaluations appear from time to time.
