Yes please for details. I'm thinking of a sitcom set in a Dubai pet shop. (If someone tries to sell you a sketch about a dead parrot, you may have heard it before. patrickdjokes@gmail.com
Cheers, Patrick.

Sorry to whinge, but it's bad practice to offer to "work" for free especially if you are being offered a fee in the first place. This is partly why writing wages are depressed.
Your time and talent has value. Don't sell yourselves short!

I was about to say the same thing.
Very bad manners and disrespectful to people who do it for a living.

Hi Emma,

I've just messaged you with my details. I've written for BBC television, BBC Radio 4 Extra and for a variety of satirical websites such as The Daily Mash. I look forward to your reply.

Many thanks,

Luke

Was enjoying a dialogue with them. It went very quiet the moment jokers on here started offering to work for free.
Surely better to try and get work based on merit rather than by bribery?

Yes, me too. Conversation stopped the same day.

Silver Lining: We now get to observe the content that will be created by someone with no experience, self-awareness, respect for the industry, respect for other writers, confidence in his own work (or sense of when to wear sunglasses).

Not really sure of the benefit of doing this for free, I don't think Netflix dish out sitcoms and stand up specials to people just because they have a CV with "Unpaid Experience Writing For A Pet Shop" on it.

Marc Humphrey you're literally taking work away from hard-working, enthusiastic, experienced people!

Good luck with it all Chris

It most cases, people that offer to write for free accurately know the value of their work.
