The commissioning process can be a difficult one to navigate, particularly for newer writers and within an ever-shifting industry landscape.

Join us for a discussion with a panel of expert commissioners and writers who will demystify the commissioning process, exploring the do’s and don’t of getting your script commissioned, from concept through to the secrets to a successful pitch.

This event is closed for new bookings.
