Newsjack is back! Series 7 first submission deadline is 17th September.

Submission guidelines are up on the BBC website. The deadline for one liners is now 4pm on Tuesday. Last series it was 5pm. Don’t get caught out! Otherwise it looks pretty similar to last series submission rules.

There is also a page of tips which gives some general pointers and a a reminder of the different formats for sketches and jokes on the show (eg corrections, “and finally”, “from the archives” sketches etc).

I can’t claim to be the most successful Newsjack writer but I do have a couple of credits now. And I spend far too much time analysing things. So feel free to make use of my experience – by looking at these past posts:

Or for the genuine inside track have a look at (BBC Radio contract comedy writer) Tom Neenan‘s blog post on the BBC Writersroom blog.

Time to go and start practicing writing funny!
