Opportunities – Pick of the Week: BBC Writersroom Script Submission window for drama – now open

Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.

This week’s pick: BBC Writersroom Script Submission window for drama – now open

Description: BBC Writersroom’s regular window for unsolicited scripts is open between 5pm on Monday 10 December 2018 and 5pm on Monday 7January 2019 for Drama scripts (TV, film, radio, stage or online).

What’s so great about it? The Writersroom submission windows are important dates in the diary of a writer, so we figured it was worth flagging this one up before it closes in January.

As a result of the submission window, a group of writers (usually between 10 and 15) will be selected to join the BBC Drama Room writer development group for 2019,

In this submission window, they are looking for drama scripts (the comedy window will open later in 2019), so it’s worth giving this a go if you’ve got a full length script to send in – do bear in mind that they receive a lot of submissions so make sure you’re sending in your best work (and check out the resources on the Writersroom website if you want some guidance!). You’ve got until 7 January to submit!
