Dream Reality Radio Drama

During 2014 we put a call out to writers across the UK
and asked them to send us their work.

“Do you have an idea for a radio play or documentary? Dream Reality Radio Drama featuring on BBC Radio Leeds is offering 7 writers new to radio the chance to have their work aired. Selected writers will receive training and workshops over a 6 month period.

Send a 1 page drama or documentary outline of something you would like to write for radio and a sample of your work, maximum of 3 pages to us.”

The time spent training and in workshops will be documented here as the project progresses, so follow us on Twitter.

By mid 2015 we completed the recording of some incredible new work.
