Sending Your Script

How the Script Room works

The end is in the beginning and yet you go on Samuel Beckett

Writersroom provides a unique open-door at the BBC for writers - we call it the Script Room.

The Script Room is a place where you can send your script to be assessed by our team of experienced readers.

We read all scripts as a calling card of a writer's talent because it's our job to find people to develop rather than ideas to make. But if we think a script is great, we will recommend it on for development.

We have strict rules on what we do and don’t accept, so before sending in anything you should acquaint yourself fully with our Terms & Conditions and FAQs.

The next Script Room window opens from 18th November 2013 and the deadline is December 16th 2013.  Full details on how to submit will be made available on the BBC writersroom Opportunities page from November 18th.

Submissisions will now be accepted via our brand new esubmissions system which will allow you to submit your script to us online.
