Television Drama - The Writers' Festival 2010

BBC Writersroom:

Starts: Wednesday, 30 June 2010 at 12:00pm

Location: Leeds College of Music (map)

"Agenda created by Tony Marchant, Jack Thorne, Alice Nutter, Toby Whithouse, and Stephen Butchard.

Be part of the first Television Writers' Festival, covering topics including the politics of notes, the balancing act of running a show, the challenges of making the transition from writer-for-hire to getting original work onscreen, and the place for political drama today.

With seminars headed up by the country's best writing, producing, and commissioning talent, including Kay Mellor, Ben Stephenson, John Yorke, Nicola Shindler, Jed Mercurio, Adam Curtis, Polly Hill, Peter Bowker, Sally Wainwright, Paula Milne, Mark Catley, Philippa Lowthorpe, Tony Jordan, Matthew Graham, William Ivory, Ben Richards, and Peter Flannery, it will be an opportunity to be inspired, challenged, and to have your say."


This was originally only for those with a TV drama credit or commission but is now open to all. Very generous.

The schedule is impressive:
