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.
The recent Script Room window is now closed for submissions. Details on the next window will be announced later in the year, along with our brand new esubmissions system for submitting scripts.
We received more than 2,600 scripts and due to this volume of submissions, we will not be in a position to acknowledge individual submissions until May. Please do not email or phone for confirmation. We will contact writers using the email address provided on cover sheets. Please be aware that emails can go astray and you should check your spam/junk folders and settings before enquiring if you haven’t received an acknowledgement. If you haven’t heard from us by the third week of May, and you have checked all your email folders thoroughly, then you can email us at that point for confirmation that your script has arrived.
Writersroom is a very small, very busy team so please don’t email or phone us unless it is absolutely necessary.
