THE BBC WRITERSROOM NEWSLETTER

Here is the bbc writersroom newsletter, a really helpful publication that will benefit writers everywhere.


New Terms, Conditions, and Guidelines-------------------------------------
As a result of one of our regular reviews of how the BBC writersroom unsolicited script system works, we have updated our Terms, Conditions, and Guidelines.

As part of this update, we are unfortunately no longer able to read the following sorts of unsolicited script:

- Adaptations of another person's work
- Scripts from overseas
- Scripts for short films

The new Terms and Conditions will come into force on 1st December 2009.

You can read the details in full here:
