I’m not even sure how I landed on this BBC page, but as someone who’s been telling stories for twenty years, I can say with some confidence that I’ve never seen anything like this anywhere else:
Send us your script»
Send us your work. We read all unsolicited scripts for BBC Films,TV Drama, Children’s Drama,TV Comedy, Radio Entertainment and Radio Drama. We accept unsolicited scripts written for film, television, radio or stage.
I mean, even the scammers and con artists who are actively trying to sucker would-be writers don’t just throw the door wide open and say, “Come on in!” (They charge you for the privilege of being fleeced.)
Is this BBC invite a good thing? A bad thing? I have no idea.
But it reminds me that while I’ve been looking for good blog fiction on the web, I keep ending up on UK and European sites. I don’t know what that means, either, but it keeps happening. Is the U.S. badly lagging in blog fiction? Is there an EU government subsidy that’s giving them an edge? How do we close the blogfic gap?
