Last weekend, five selected writers attended the launch of our Script Bank writers' pilot scheme, with a weekend workshop on writing treatments. 

We are pleased to announce the names of the writers who are participating in the first part of the scheme; they are: Samuel Dore, Matthew Kirby, Melissa Mostyn, Julian Peedle-Calloo and Sol Warwick.

The scheme will continue through the year, with some of the writers being selected to write full scripts later in the year.

Maggie Swinfen, BSLBT’s Head of Commissioning, says: "The weekend workshop was a great success.  The group worked together with the Script Bank team of James Banks, Abigail Davies, John Maidens and Charlie Swinbourne.  We all had fun, worked hard and learnt a lot.  I would like to thank everyone who applied, and wish the selected writers well on their journeys!”
