Budding Purbeck novelist shortlisted for BBC workshop
Year 11 student, Helen Turnock, has been taking part in a regular script writing workshop as part of The Lighthouse Young Writers in Poole. Helen’s script, The Analogue Hall, was shortlisted as part of the BBC New Creatives scheme, beating over 280 applications, to develop her project ahead of a BBC Panel which could see her work made for broadcast.
Helen attended two free training days in Bristol to learn more about BBC New Creatives, the process of audio production and how to market herself as ‘a creative’.
“I was really excited to be selected and found the course very interesting. I now understand much more about the production costs and importance of audio on a story,” said Helen.
If Helen’s application is successful, her work will be recorded and played across all BBC platforms.
