    Has the date for this been pushed back? Normally they would have released it by now

    I’d suggest writing for Cosmic Masque, if you want to get noticed. It’s the mostly fan fiction e magazine of DWAS. I’m sure they’d accept work from anyone if it’s reasonably good… (search for ‘DWAS Cosmic Masque’ on google… There’s an email on their site)

    Does anyone know how I can pitch my ideas for some Doctor Who things to Big Finish?

      Sorry to burst your bubble mate but I find it very unlikely they’ll take any writing from unestablished writers. I remember Phillip Lawrence once writing for them (from AFT) but he’d been writing DWF comics for 10 years. You could always try emailing ideas, if one really is that good who knows.

      Don’t email ideas. They won’t read them. Because they don’t want to be sued.

      Big Finish occasionally does open up for submissions, but they’re not a huge outfit and it’s a lot of work to administer.

      The best way to get published as a writer is to write and publish. Get some of your own work out there first and use that to show people what you’re capable of.
