The Black List has announced its first ever Screenwriters Lab, in which six nonprofessional screenwriters will be invited to attend an all-expenses paid workshop in Las Vegas, from September 30 to October 5, with four screenwriting mentors. Currently confirmed mentors are Billy Ray ("The Hunger Games," "Captain Phillips"), Kiwi Smith ("Legally Blonde," the upcoming "Expendabelles") and Scott Myers, founder of Black List's screenwriting blog Go Into The Story.

The lab will be hosted by the Las Vegas Downtown Project, and 15 writers will be invited to submit a personal statement before the Black List -- known for its survey of unproduced screenplays but currently expanding its outreach to education and advocacy -- choose six participants. Applicants are encouraged to upload their work via the Black List's script-hosting website.
