Rather than accepting scripts year-round, BBC Writersroom has a distinct submission windows for scripts which are announced on the BBC Writersroom Opportunities page during the year. Each Open Call has a deadline, following which the scripts received are assessed intensively by script readers and the BBC Writersroom team, and a shortlist drawn up. They then offer various opportunities for the shortlisted group of writers including their Drama Room and Voices development groups.
The next Open Call submission window is from Wednesday 9th November to Wednesday 7th December 2022 at noon.
