BBC Writersroom presents: Get Your Script Submission-Ready

The BBC Writersroom’s Drama Script Room attracted nearly 4000 scripts last year. So, what is the Drama Script Room? Why are so many writers competing to join this prestigious scheme? And how do you give your script, the one that you have been slaving over for months, the best chance of being selected?

In this session, Simon Nelson (Development Executive, BBC Writersroom) and Nigel Hastings (Head Reader, BBC Writersrooms) will give you an insider’s guide to the scheme. Find out what the readers are looking for in your script and get top tips on how to get your script ready to submit.
