Ever considered writing for screen? This exclusive session with BBC Writersroom Wales will explore the key elements needed to create a standout TV script, including investigation into character, structure, dialogue and genre along with what producers look for in speculative scripts. The session is for anyone with an interest in screenwriting regardless of experience. New writers will get an introduction to the basic elements of good storytelling, or it will serve as a great refresher course for more experienced screenwriters.
BBC Writersroom discover, develop and champion new and experienced writing talent across the whole of the UK. We are a cross-genre department for scripted content who work with Drama, Comedy, CBBC, CBeebies, Radio, Online – and others.
The session will be led by Helen Perry who has been the Development Producer for BBC Writersroom in Wales since January 2018. Before joining the BBC Writersroom she worked as a Producer / Director in BBC Radio Drama. She has produced a vast number of original dramas, readings and series for Radio 4, Radio 3, World Service, Radio Wales and 1Xtra.
