Point of clarification.

The information regarding eligibility was copied and pasted, unaltered, from the email I received from The Writers Lab announcing it was open for submissions where it stated, "Applicants must identify as female and be born on or prior to February 28, 1978. "

I note that the FAQs at: http://thewriterslab.nyc/about/frequently-asked-questions/ merely state, "The Lab supports female writers over the age of 40".

While I have emailed The Writers Lab asking them to clarify the FAQs, regardless, I will reimburse any current member of the discussion board who forwards me their entry receipt confirmation email for The Writers Lab.

The questions continue.  I got this back from The Writers Lab:


Quoted Text

Dear Don,

Yes, applicants must be female and at least 40 years old.

It is indicated that the Lab is "for women screenwriters" in Submission Information on the main page and also the Application page.

Best regards,

Minjung

So, I sent back, "Are transgendered writers who identify as female eligible to submit to the writers lab?"

In response to my query to The Writers Lab:

Are transgendered writers who identify as female eligible to submit to the writers lab

The response back:


Quoted Text

Dear Don,

Yes! Every woman is definitely eligible to apply to the Writers Lab. The identification is needed for a proof of birth date when accepted applicants sign the Lab Contract.

Best,
