FEM Script Lab is a writing lab for female and non-binary screenwriters in Toronto, held monthly at The Theatre Centre ( It's a place for screenwriters to share and receive feedback on work that is in development. We provide peer and mentor feedback in an environment that encourages innovation and creative risk-taking. 


Our mission is to nurture writers,  invest in female-driven stories and promote women as creators of content.  We aim to support writers during the creation process and create a community that offers programming for the promotion and viewing of female driven work.


Our next lab dates will be held between FEB - JUNE 2019 at The Theatre Centre. We are also running a MASTERCLASS with JILL GOLICK on JUNE 15th.

FEM SCRIPT LAB uses an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we encourage submissions from trans women and non-binary people. We aim to create a safe and welcoming environment for all screenwriters to share their stories.

After three successful years of FEM SCRIPT LAB, we are excited to launch a sister branch of the lab in the UK. With the support of Ffilm Cymru Wales and the BFI Network, we are bringing the lab model to Cardiff, Wales.
