Room to Write – BBC Comedy

624

Can you write something funny? Do you want to be part of a Scottish online comedy writing community? Do you want to write Scottish Comedy for TV, radio or online? BBC’s Room to Write is coming to Dundee in May and would love to meet aspiring comedians! 

Room to Write is an exciting new opportunity to work with BBC Scotland’s Comedy Production team and to be part of a brand new BBC Comedy and BBC Writersroom initiative, where 10–20 comedy writers will work with them, and each other, in creating the next wave of Scottish comedy shows. Successful writers will get a rare opportunity to learn from some great people, including writers Jack Docherty and Susan Calman, and to be part of an exclusive online comedy writing forum where they will gain excellent feedback and have their work read by Comedy Producers.

They are starting by offering a series of free workshops:
