    Writersroom Partnerships

    Beyond the BBC

    Writersroom works in partnership across the industry

Writing is re-writing Paul Abbott

Writers are at the heart of everything we do.

Responsive, proactive and an open door to writers, BBC writersoom is always looking at new ways to find and champion talent for all BBC platforms.

We know how hard it is to be a writer and we believe in finding ways to inspire and inform you, to keep you across changes, giving you access to commissioners and production departments but most importantly to the skills and and experience of established writers.

We are not here for the short term, we understand how long it can take for a writer to find that first and second commission, but if we think you have talent then we will do everything in our power to support and develop you for the long term. Read more here.
