For writers, radio can be the most creative medium of all, as well as being the most accessible doorway into the broadcast world: hundreds of successful writers began in radio. And the unique way radio engages its audience enables the writer and the listener to collaborate in extraordinarily powerful imaginative experiences.
BBC radio has a huge output of drama and comedy and needs good writers all the time. Jeremy Howe and Jane Berthoud are responsible for commissioning BBC radio drama and comedy respectively. Come and hear them tell you what they’re looking for, alongside writer Danny Robins and writer-producer Jonathan Ruffle who’ll reveal how they achieved success on radio, reaching audiences that are OFTEN BIGGER than those for some TV programmes.
