The Fifth Annual Stowe Story Labs, which will be held September 9 - 12, 2017. The application period is now closed and we will not be monitoring submissions posted after midnight, ET, July 23. THANK YOU!
About Stowe Story Labs:
We are a nonprofit dedicated to helping emerging screenwriters, filmmakers and creative producers get work made and seen. The 2017 Fall Lab will be held at Stowe, Vermont's Helen Day Art Center, located in the heart of the village of Stowe. Details about the program and agenda can be found here.
We work to keep the cost of programming as low as possible. The fee to attend the four day lab is $1,750, which includes 'working lunch', light supper and all content. Lodging is separate and is offered through our lodging partners, who all offer deep and meaningful discounts to lab participants (and most include full breakfast ....).
We offer several fellowships, which cover the fees to attend the labs (and in some instances lodging as well as other benefits). Please check the website for information about each fellowship. You do not need to make any separate application to be considered for a fellowship. Just click 'yes' when asked and we will consider you for all fellowships you qualify for. You can of course mention what fellowships you are most interested in (and why you are a good candidate for a fellowship) in your essay.
We also offer limited partial scholarships. Again, there is not a separate application process for scholarships.
If you are admitted to the Fall Lab you are automatically admitted to a Writers' Retreat and ongoing, structured mentoring. You do not need to accept these other elements but you may as part of our process to help participants get work made and seen. There are separate fees for each element of the program.
Please note we do not provide feedback on projects through our submission process.
Thank you again for taking the time to apply and best of luck in the process.
