TIME AND DAY: 2:10 PM - SATURDAY
ROOM: ROOM B

Think the BBC Writers' Academy is the only way into writing continuing drama and series? Think again! Hear from three writers who've broken in themselves and are now writing the homegrown primetime shows we love.

Between them, Lisa Holdsworth, Marc Pye and Danny Stack have travelled the soap writing spectrum from EASTENDERS to WATERLOO ROAD to HOLBY BLUE and back again.

Hear how they got their feet in the doors and, perhaps more importantly, how they maintained long and successful careers in this competitive genre once they got through those doors.
