Forty aspiring writers for screen, stage and radio will attend a practical, hands-on BBC Writersroom workshop at IdeasTap, taking place on Wednesday 17 December 2014.
The workshop will be held from 1pm till 6pm with a free lunch being served from 12pm for all attendees. The workshop will be delivered by Henry R. Swindell, development executive for BBC Writersroom.
