Loretta has been Storylining Doctors since 2008 and has over 600 episodes under her belt to date. Doctors is wildly held to be one of the primary entry points into the industry for new writers and Loretta will be recreating her Writers Room to give the successful delegates the inside perspective on what new writers can expect from and what opportunities lie inside the Writers Room of this popular and enduring long running series.
Six successful applicants will join Loretta in her Writers Room for the whole day on Thursday 14th September.
Throughout the day, under Loretta’s leadership, the participants will work together to create a detailed 3-5 page step outline for an episode of Doctors. This will simulate a real-world experience of collaborative writing under pressurised conditions with a real deadline.
Participants will be expected to come to their Writers Room having thoroughly researched the show.
