BBC pitching and networking

When: Thursday 23 January 2020

Location: BBC Glasgow, Pacific Quay.

An afternoon of pitching and networking for Publishing Scotland members with independent producers. To confirm attendance please RSVP to india.weir@bbc.co.uk by 20 December.

We have asked the producers to give us the type of stories/ titles they are looking for and will circulate a final list in the new year but below will give you an idea. Sign up for a pitch, the timings will be confirmed in January.

  • Mainly looking for Scottish fiction stories but open to everything
  • The priority for us are Scottish-set stories (or stories that COULD be set in Scotland).  We would be interested in crime stories that don't feel over familiar and anything that has relationships at the heart of but with a narrative hook (like Big Little Lies).
  • Looking for big worlds, world building stories, possibly with fantasy elements, returnable stories, big brands with key Scottish recognisable elements which are internationally understood.
  • Interested in meeting publishers & authors who write about: History, Social History, Arts, Women's Issues, Medical
