What is the application process?
In order to join The Script Development Lab, screenwriters must apply. The application process is to assess your level of screenwriting as this program is best suited for Emerging to Established screenwriters who are prepared to write on deadline and have an open schedule to consistently write and read your fellow Tribe Members' work so you can reach your writing goals as a group.
The application includes submitting a previously written screenplay. THIS IS NOT A DEEP DIVE into your screenplay. For Development Notes, please submit your screenplay here.
If you receive a CONSIDER or NEEDS DEVELOPMENT on your assessment, you will be offered the opportunity to pitch your idea for the class. You will be contacted via email about pitch day details.
If you are accepted into the Lab, the application fee will go towards your Lab Program Fee. Pen Pals are accepted into the program on a case-by-case basis when enrollment is open.

What happens if I'm not accepted into the program?
You may not be accepted into the Script Development Lab for many reasons. Those who are not accepted will be given personalized next steps to continue on their writing journey with TPP.
Can I work on a rewrite in the program?
The Script Development Lab guides screenwriters through a proven writing process from idea to pitch to help them reproduce multiple screenplays/year. Because of this, screenwriters should join the program with a fresh idea. If you are interested in revising or rewriting your screenplay, we offer packages to those who submit for Development Notes.
What happens if I miss a scheduled meeting?
All sessions are recorded and available at your request. Communicate with your Story Expert about scheduling conflicts to see if there is an opportunity to reschedule your 1:1 Office Hours. We will accommodate where we can, but there may not always be wiggle room. It's at your Story Expert's discretion and on a case-by-case basis.
Can I schedule additional 1:1 Office Hours with my Story Expert?
There are a fixed amount of scheduled 1:1 Office Hours with your Story Expert in the Script Development Lab. However, you can always schedule additional Office Hours at the hourly rate. Your Story Expert will give you a link to access their schedule at your discretion.
