The write stuff

Free BBC workshop

Would-be comedy writers have been invited to a free BBC workshop.

Entertainment producer Mario Stylanides is running the one-day class in Manchester on June 26.

A similar project last year saw three scripts being developed for radio. One is about to go into production, and will star Countdown's Richard Whiteley.

Stylanides said: "I will mainly be talking about writing for radio, but I will cover TV too. It should be fun, informative and will hopefully open doors for people to get their stuff onto the BBC."

To apply for one of the 20 available places, e-mail or call her on 020 7765 4220.
