BBC Writersroom Wales

BBC Writersroom launched in Wales in March 2017. Our Development Producer Helen Perry and Coordinator Emily Willis are based at the BBC's offices in Cardiff. 

BBC Writersroom Wales' aim, alongside the rest of BBC Writersroom across the UK, is to champion new and experienced writing talent, to support and develop writers so that they can go and create brilliant stories for the audience.

BBC Writersroom Wales will feed into all the pan-UK Writersroom schemes but will also create bespoke opportunities for Welsh writers, writers living and working in Wales, and also writers who can authentically depict Welsh stories and Welsh characters and reflect the culture of Wales in their writing.
