Room to Write is an exciting new opportunity to work with BBC Scotland’s Comedy Production team and to be part of a brand new BBC Comedy and BBC Writersroom initiative, where 10–20 comedy writers will work with us, and each other, in creating the next wave of Scottish comedy shows. Successful writers will get a rare opportunity to learn from some great people, including writers Jack Docherty and Susan Calman, and to be part of an exclusive online comedy writing forum where they will gain excellent feedback and have their work read by Comedy Producers.
How Room To Write Works
If you are over 18 then you need to attend one of the Room to Write Workshops (sadly the only two left with spaces are in Aberdeen and Inverness!) After the workshop you need to submit two sketches (4 pages maximum per submission) to the BBC Writersroom by Friday the 13th June, 2014
Selection from the material submitted and invites to the best 10 – 20 into the exclusive online comedy writing forum will take place by Friday the 25th July, 2014. The BBC will then work with you till the end of the year. Due to the large amount of material we are likely to receive, if you do not hear from us after submitting your work then I am afraid that on this occasion you have been unsuccessful.
Available Workshop Dates, Venues and Times
- Saturday 24th May @ The Arts Centre ABERDEEN: 1400 – 1630
- Sunday 25th May @ Eden Court Theatre INVERNESS: 1030 – 1300
If you are taking part then WLW finishes you good luck!
