Congratulations to the six talented writers that have been chosen to take part in our first Writers’ Lab Aotearoa:
Gillian Ashurst with RATTLED
Kelly Kilgour with RETURN
Maile Daugherty with MISSU PEACE
Miriam Smith with THE MOUNTAIN UNSEEN
Nic Gorman with HUMAN TRACES
Tusi Tamasese with TILA AND TAEMA
These writers will undergo intensive workshopping of their feature projects over the course of a five-day residential lab on Waiheke Island at the beginning of July. Mentorship will come from prestigious international and local professionals: US screenwriters Michael Goldenberg and David Seidler as well as an exciting line-up of kiwis soon to be announced.
Script to Screen received 55 applications from writers and writing teams. A selection panel of industry practitioners read these blind in order to create a shortlist of twelve. A very warm thank you to all the writers who applied and congratulations to those who made it to the highly competitive shortlist.
