In order to apply you must have had a television or radio drama or a short film (not a student film) produced, or a theatre piece performed professionally. The closing date for entries is 15 May 2006.
For an insight into last year's recruitment process, Danny Stack has the inside story of his own near miss.
The training you receive from BBC Drama Series Writers Academy will give you the specific skills required to write for some of the BBC's most popular format series such as Doctors, EastEnders, Holby City and Casualty.
Potential writers will have already had at least one film, television or radio drama script produced or one theatre piece performed professionally. The Writers Academy will train up to 8 writers a year, over a period of twelve months.
