Stowe, VT, January 14, 2021: Stowe Story Labs and Coverfly are pleased to announce an extension of their partnership through Coverfly’s Writer Success Program. This program was built by Coverfly to support top up-and-coming projects and writers who are ready to get signed, staffed, and packaged. Starting in 2021, Stowe will refer up to 15 alumni to the program annually.
The team at Coverfly will provide outreach, support, consultation, and career strategy to the referred Stowe participants. They will build a customized outreach and career strategy based on each writer’s goals, strengths, relationships, and current standing.
Now in its 9th year, Stowe Story Labs offers labs, retreats, and mentoring to top emerging screenwriters, filmmakers, and creative producers to get work made and seen. Stowe’s 4-day intensive Narrative Lab is the cornerstone of Stowe’s programming. Held annually in June at the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, Vermont, the Lab brings selected participants together with top industry mentors to workshop, collaborate, network, pitch, and demystify the international film and television industry. Stowe’s Writers’ Retreats provide small groups of writers some workshop content, but the focus of the program is on 1-on-1 script notes meetings with three different industry mentors.

We look forward to deepening our relationship with Coverfly through this partnership.”
