BBC writersroom's job is to find, and develop a relationship with talented writers.
Our success is gauged not only by writers going on to be commissioned and produced, but also by the strength of our continuing relationship with them. Here are a handful of the writers who we have develped in the past and with whom we continue to have a strong relationship.
Jack Thorne first came to the BBC through our Sparks radio scheme and has written award-winning work for BBC Radio. He was introduced to BBC Drama, eventually leading to his original series The Fades on BBC THREE. He was also on the writer committee for our TV Drama Writer'S Festival.

Sarah Phelps came on our first Sparks radio drama scheme in 1999 and went on to write Afternoon, Friday and Woman's Hour plays for Radio 4, then 42 episodes of Westway on the World Service. Sarah also came on a CBBC Comedy Drama scheme and had an original idea commissioned. She then became a core writer for EastEnders.
