Yesterday we had our masterclass/workshop with 18 shortlisted writers, where we got to know them a lot better, they brainstormed children's drama, received feedback on their scripts, talked to writer Jo Ho about her forthcoming CBBC show Bo and the Spirit World, and got to hear from the Controller of CBBC Anne Gilchrist and CBBC Head of Drama Steven Andrew. We also asked them to complete a fast-turnaround writing exercise before they came. Some writers came from as far afield as Edinburgh, Aberystwyth, Blackpool and Sunderland. The next stage is to select the final 8 for the residential. The shortlisted writers and their scripts were:

Kerry Drewery The Office of Imaginary Friends
Andrew Turner From All Sides
Christina Balit The Remnants
Nick King Misfits
Mark Brotherhood Take Two
Jon Ware Sheila's Ark
Abigail Chandler Edison Bright
Debbie Moon Wrongblood
Matt Kimpton Melanie Watson's Guide to the Impossible
Brian Spence The Santa Trap
Tony Kerr Tell Tale
Maxwell Slater Sparks
Kulvinder Gill Cybertecs
Alice Charles 2088
Felicity Carpenter Quick, Decide!
Darren Rapier High Seas and Little Bs
Matt Sinclair The Magician's Daughter
Andy Dixon Circus Scrumptious
