02/10/2008: Taking the Lift to the Top of your Career

I dined with a former colleague last night before the WGA meeting, and she mentioned that she was interested in trying her hand at writing radio plays. Well, guess what I pulled out of the mailbag this evening? A letter from Loyal Reader Branko, directing my attention to this site. Say!

The link is to a BBC writing development program called "Writersroom". They say "Writersroom is constantly on the lookout for writers of any age and experience who show real potential for the BBC. We accept and read unsolicited scripts for film, TV and radio drama, TV and radio narrative comedy and theatre.

I've poked around through the links there for a little while and I don't see a mention of a UK citizenship requirement. Maybe I'm crazy, but it seems to me that there may be brave souls here in the US, and other Gentle Readers overseas who might want to look into what seems like a prime opportunity. Now, it's a development program; they're hoping to create writers who will stay and work for the BBC, not ones who will run off to Hollywood, so keep that in mind, but if you're looking to write professionally and would find London a desirable destination, well... meet your open door.

I'm charmed by the wide variety of types of scripts that are accepted. Radio drama! Mmm.
