Writersroom is a very small department working across the whole of BBC drama, comedy and children's departments.
Kate Rowland leads the team and is the BBC's Creative Director, New Writing. Previously Kate was the Head of Radio Drama at the BBC before setting up writersroom, and she continues to commission The Wire slot of original new drama on Radio 3.
Paul Ashton is the Development Producer, overseeing writer development, script calls and talent searches, development schemes, partnerships and production projects.
Henry R. Swindell is the Develpment Producer working out of Salford and across the north of England, overseeing writer development, talent partnerships and development projects.
Writersroom is one team sited in two places. In the London office there is also a New Writing Coordinator, Website Producer, Assistant to the Creative Director, and Script Assistant; and in Salford there is a Project Coordinator.
Alongside us is a team of freelance professional script readers who work on the script calls, talent searches and competitions.
