NALIP's 2012 Latino Writers Lab Application is Here!

Do you have a great script you want to develop?  Are you ready to take the next step on your career as a screenwriter?  

Apply to participate in NALIP’s inspiring, creative 10-day Latino Writers Lab program.  This is a professional development intensive that will alter your writing process, inspire your current project, and nurture your unique voice as you develop your feature screenplay.

In its tenth year, the Latino Writers Lab offers top-level skills development as well as specific, one-on-one mentoring for your work-in-progress.  It also includes intimate professional lunches that provide you with invaluable information and important relationships for your career.  This is not a program for beginning writers:  you must have at least one complete screenplay under your belt, and hopefully additional skills study.  But it is a great program to develop a treatment into a first draft, or a rough draft into something you can promote or sell.  

This program is taught in two parts.  The first session takes place in the beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico, May 30 – June 3, 2012.  You will learn new techniques and receive specific notes that will give you the necessary tools and ideas to rewrite your screenplay over the summer.  When we meet again in Santa Monica, CA September 26-30, the program will discuss scene structure and rewriting strategies using your own work, plus give you a new set of notes on your draft.  

Applying for the LWL 2012 will be easier than ever this year.  NALIP is going green!  The LATINO WRITERS LAB application is available here. Apply Now! The deadline is Friday, March 30, so please take a look and get started!
