I was pleased to learn that my script ‘The Djinn’, which I had written for one of my Birkbeck modules, made it into the last rounds of the BBC Writers Room 2015 Drama Script competition.
This put it in the top 20% of over 3,100 entries which is not bad considering it had been chopped about quite a bit to meet a rather puzzling word limit set for the module.
A cynic suggested that it had more significant flaws: the writer was too white, too old and too male but then he’s just jealous.
I had submitted several scripts before and got nary a snifter so it was pleasing to see that my studies have not been entirely in vain.
Onwards and upwards!
