Thank you for applying to Stowe Story Labs.
About Stowe Story Labs:
We are a nonprofit dedicated to helping emerging screenwriters, filmmakers and creative producers get work made and seen. This application is for our narrative story labs and writers' retreats. Details about our programming and template agendas can be found here.
We work to keep the cost of programming as low as possible. Fees for 2020 are not yet set. The 2019 fee to attend the four day Lab was $2,250. The fee to attend a five-day writers' retreat was $2,500. It includes all content and some meals. Travel and lodging is separate, and lodging is offered through our lodging partners, who all offer deep and meaningful discounts to participants (and most include breakfast ....).
We offer several fellowships to the Stowe Narrative Lab. We do not have fellowships for other programs yet. The fellowships cover the fees for one participant to attend the Lab (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 a separate application to be considered for a fellowship. Just click 'yes' when asked and you will be considered for all applicable fellowships. You can of course mention what fellowships you are most interested in (and why you are a good candidate for a fellowship) in your answers.
We also offer limited partial scholarships. Again, there is not a separate application process for scholarships but we do ask about need.
Please do rank the programs you are most interested in, which will help us sort applications during the application process. As we review material, we may reach out and suggest one program over another.
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.
