Athena Film Festival Writers Lab

Talent Development Labs Serving Writers for Film and Television

The Athena Film Festival Writers Lab is a workshop for emerging writers which provides storytellers with creative guidance, writing training, industry access, and a supportive network. Applicants must submit a project that features a woman or women characters in a leadership role or position at the center of the story.

Participants from our lab have gone on to win grants and fellowships and have even gone on to write for popular series such as the CW’s Riverdale, Netflix’s Ginny and Georgia, and Grey’s Anatomy.

See below for information on our latest cohort of writers for The Athena Film Festival Writers Lab.
