CBBC Children's Drama Opportunity

This is what it says on the Writersroom Opportunities page:

Do you have stories to tell that we've never seen before?
Can you create characters the audience will fall in love with?

We want to find the next generation of CBBC writers with fresh perspectives, original voices, and the ability to create unforgettable characters.

This opportunity is open to any writer who wants to write Children's drama for the 6-12 age range. We are looking for 30-minute original TV scripts of unmissable and infectious storytelling, offering fresh cultural perspectives, tales combining authenticity with hope and joy, stories from a child's point of view, characters that will engage and surprise the audience, scripts that are powerful, emotional, and contemporary, shows that will work for the CBBC audience and channel but can dare to take risks.


I have an idea for this. It's slowly germinating, so I'm not going to rush into writing it just yet, but will spend some thinking time on the project. Most, well okay, some, of the story is there, lurking, but it's the how's and when's that I need to get straight.

Don't you just love it when the idea hits, and you can't stop mulling it over?


  1. Thanks for the link, Antonia - I think I'll give it a go!

  3. Thanks! Good luck to you, too.
