Where are they now?

The Writers Academy has been going for four years now. 32 writers have done the course, and I thought it might be useful to look at what's happened to them....

Academy writers have joined the core writing teams of all four shows... five at Casualty (including one, Mark Catley, who's now the Lead Writer), six at Holby, two at EastEnders and one at Doctors

28 out of the 32 are in pretty much constant work for the department.

One has a new series in development for BBC 3

One is developping an internet drama for the BBC.

One wrote last week's episode of Shameless

Several have kept up theatre and radio writing careers alongside their work for us.
