BBC Scotland on hunt for new comedy writing talent

BBC Scotland’s comedy department is on the look-out for new writing talent, via a competition with three mentoring prizes up for grabs.

Write Here, Write Now has a deadline date of March 26 and from the entries received, three writers will have their ideas worked up, under the watchful eye of mentors, for a performance during the Edinburgh International Festival.

In the first instance, what is being asked of participants is the first ten-to-15 pages (no more than 2,000 words) of a sitcom or comedy drama idea.
