Talk on writing radio drama

McAleavey, J. (Speaker)

    Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


    In association with the BBC and Tinderbox Theatre Company, I gave a two-hour talk and workshop aimed at writers new to radio drama. I played some excerpts from some of my own radio plays and we discussed what makes good radio drama. I took them through the commissioning process and how best to tailor their ideas to have the maximum chance of being commissioned. This was followed the next day by a 'speed-dating' networking event where I spoke to writers individually.
