Welcome to the brand new and improved BBC writersroom website.
As well as launching a whole new look for us, we're also announcing the Script Room - a brand new system for submitting unsoliciting scripts to the BBC - read more on Paul Ashton's blog post.
The new website offers a range of new content for you to browse - from our new Write a Script collection of script writing video tutorials, to our Be Inspired section, where we have video interviews with some of Britain's top TV, radio and theatre writers including Jimmy McGovern, Sarah Phelps, Jack Thorne, Tony Marchant and Toby Whithouse - to name a few.
We've improved our Opportunities section - where you can search for new writing opportunities from the BBC and beyond, and our Script Library - where you can read and download BBC TV, radio and film scripts.
The new site is the result of the hard work of a fantastic team. A big thanks goes to - our Developer/Technical Project Manager (and sometimes camera man!), Paul Thomson, our Producer/Project Manager, Neil Taylor, our design agency Kent Lyons (who also supplied all the original imagery on the site), the whole of the BBC writersroom team and all of the writers who allowed us to interview them.
Stay tuned to the site during March as we'll be launching several exciting new opportunities for writers throughout the course of the month. If you're interested in writing for comedy - don't forget that our Laugh Track New Writing Talent Search is open for entries until March 21st.
