On Tuesday, I'm attending the Alfred Bradley Bursary Award Masterclass at the BBC in Manchester. I have to be there for 1.30 p.m. where Charlotte Riches will meet us.

We don't need to take any work, but we're welcome to pitch an idea! I have an idea, but have no idea about pitching. Also, my idea is the one that will be going into the Alfred Bradley comp, so....

Actually, I do have another idea for a series, but haven't developed it at all, so I wonder if there's enough there to pitch.

I can't imagine pitching in front of an audience (at the moment, anyway) and that's what might happen with it being a Masterclass. I doubt we'll get one to one pitching time.

Hmmm, let's just see what happens.


  1. How did the pitching session go?

  2. I'll be writing a bit about it over the next couple of days, Jacqui, but good. It wasn't a pitching session as such, but a session on what the BBC look for in new writing. People could pitch at the end if they wanted to.

  3. Looking forward to reading about it.

  4. Have to say, I didn't stay to pitch, after all. I didn't have any ideas fully formed or thought through properly, so decided I could wait for a time when I know what I'm talking about!
