  2. In the ‘I’m attending on…’ panel, tap or click the PayPal logo and follow the directions on PayPal to contribute your £2 subs using your debit or credit card or PayPal account.
  3. When you’ve made your payment, check your email inbox for a message from Southwest Scriptwriters titled ‘Thank you for your subs payment.’ If the email isn’t in your inbox with the PayPal payment confirmation, check your spam and junk folders for it.

Wednesday, 6 July at 7.30pm on Zoom: Let’s get started on Open Call

Let's get started

BBC Writersroom’s Open Call is a series of script submission windows during which the corporation’s writer development team invites you to send an example of your work to help it discover new talent.

Writersroom schedules its drama and comedy-drama window to span the New Year period — it was last open between 9 December 2021 and 13 January 2022 — and is planning another this year.

Adrian Harris is leading this evening’s meeting and is aiming to submit a script in December’s Open Call. He’s facing a blank screen with no plans so far for the story he’ll tell. Join Adrian in setting out on writing a script of your own for the initiative. It’s a chance for the group to offer mutual support on a quest to impress Writersroom — we’ll be checking in with you between now and December to see how your script is shaping up and to offer development support.

Writersroom’s Open Call is a great opportunity for writers of drama or comedy-drama for all media as it accepts film, TV, radio, stage or online scripts including those aimed at children, making it a helpful goal on which we can focus between now and the New Year. Please note, though, that we’re doing this as an in-group initiative without any endorsement from or contact with BBC Writersroom.

Let’s get started!
