Networking session with the founders of The Writers Lab, Elizabeth Kaiden and Nitza Wilon

EWA Network is delighted to host the founders of The Writers Lab in a meeting with EWA members.

The Writers Lab presents script-development intensives & market incubation to build craft, community, and career. TWL amplifies the voices of women in their prime whose stories have not been told.

Kaiden and Wilon will present their lab before opening a Q&A with EWA members and free flow discussion about the members' projects. You are welcome to participate and share a logline or project you are working in.

WHEN: OCTOBER 24 at 17:30 CET

EWA members will receive an invitation to attend this talk.


Through an online space where EWA members from all around can connect and know each other, we organise once a month a meeting where an expert introduces a topic followed by Q&A and members can interact.

Each meeting will last 75 minutes aprox and it's open to 20-25 EWA members, who can introduce themselves and participate in the following Q&A.

An invitation to join the talk will be sent to EWA members (first come, first served basis).
