The 1497 Writers Lab is designed to elevate and develop screenplays by writers of South Asian descent. 

We believe in a holistic approach that will assist the Writer's creative and career journey. As a result, each selected Mentee will go through a 4-phased process: 

 

  1. Peer to Peer Workshops

  2. Script Coaching and Development

  3. Mentorship

  4. Advisory Sessions
