Writers new to radio are invited to send original short stories between 1,900 and 2,000 words
The three strongest stories will be broadcast on Opening Lines, an annual Radio 4 series of stories by writers whose stories have not previously been broadcast on the radio.
The best stories submitted will also be published on the Opening Lines programme pages.
The BBC Radio Drama Readings Unit is looking for short stories which work well being read aloud, ie with a strong focus on narrative rather than dialogue, character description or digression.
The time allotted for each story is 14 minutes, meaning that stories that fall under or over the wordcount of 1,900-2,000 words cannot be considered.
The submission window closes on 14 February.
