The Screenwriters Colony
Each year, The Screenwriters Colony selects four writers through a comprehensive industry nomination process, aiming for a diverse yet complementary group of writers. These writers then live and work together expenses-free for the month of October at historic Almanack farm, on the edge of Nantucket's conversation land. They spend the month writing, reading each other’s screenplays and working with the illustrious industry mentors whom we bring up each weekend to read their scripts. These mentors are drawn from screenwriters, directors, producers and creative executives, and hail from both the independent scene and Hollywood.
