More tickets available for BBC TV drama writing Q&A

Several weeks ago a Q&A session about writing for the BBC would be among the many, many, many events happening in Edinburgh during the many, many, many festivals that occur every August. Unfortunately, all the tickets were long gone by the time the BBC publicity machine started telling everyone on its wannabe writers mailing list about the event. Cue much sulking from me. Due to popular demand, the event's been shifted to a larger room and a fresh batch of tickets has been released - but they're going fast. Here's the PR blurb that sparked the ticket frenzy...
Q&A: Writing for the BBC 2pm - 3.30pm Tuesday 15 August, Screen 3, Filmhouse Interested in writing for the BBC? Want to find out about opportunities with BBC Scotland's Drama Department? Come along and put your questions on writing for BBC TV, Film and Radio to Kate Rowland, the BBC's Creative Director, New Writing, Anne Mensah, Head of Drama, BBC Scotland and Sandra MacIver, Executive Producer River City.

There will be an announcement about several forthcoming TV writing opportunities open to new writers. Free tickets can be reserved in person at the Filmhouse, 88 Lothian Road, Edinburgh EH3 9BZ. UPDATE: You can telephone for tickets. Call the main booking ofice after midday on 0131 623 8030. [Thanks to Barry D for the correction!] Capacity is limited so book early!

BBC writersroom identifies and champions new writing and diversity across all BBC platforms. For anyone interested in becoming a broadcast scribe, I recommend regular visits to the site.
