BBC Radio 4 extra seeking submissions for Newsjack

Newsjack the Radio 4 Extra topical news sketch show, which anyone can write for, is again looking for writers to submit sketches and one-liners for its 21st series.

Irreverent and satirical, Newsjack is the scrapbook sketch show written entirely by the Great British public, and then bought to life by a revolving cast of sketch performers.

Trying to make sense of it all is host Kiri Pritchard-McLean.
