4% rates rise for BBC audio drama writers 

Our union negotiators have been hard at work to establish a 4% increase in minimum fees for BBC audio drama writers (effective from 1 April 2023). 

This means that the rate for established writers on original drama rises to £108.65 per minute (for two transmissions).  

There are also new minimum rates for The Archers, short stories, abridgements, and podcast drama, plus the standard attendance rate has also risen to £78, as have Archers script conference and long-term conference rates.
