Script Editing

Straight away, Yvonne saw the bigger picture and was showed me how to connect ideas together so nothing gets lost, it was like a string of light bulbs going on. Whenever you get to a point where you’ve fizzled out, she comes up with both new ideas and practical suggestions which get you right back to knowing what to do next. A true expert and a brilliant teacher’. Stacey Williams – writer

‪’What does Yvonne do with a script?’ She looks for the heartbeat of it, the characters, the themes, the what really matters, and then she gives detailed, focused, passionate notes that help you re-write in a way that makes it beat louder.’ Alison Down – writer‪‬

Huge thanks to @YVONNEGRACE1 for her great report on my script: honest, inspiring and clear on what needs fixing – Guy Lambert – Writer

Script Consultancy

I’ve worked with Yvonne on several projects and apart from benefiting from her vast TV experience and script wisdom, I’ve also enjoyed her enthusiasm and encouragement, all delivered with a heady dose of Northern wit! – Joe Cawley

Yvonne has been invaluable in my overall development. With her support over the past six months I have been able to produce my finest work to date and my confidence in my ability has a writer has grown enormously. She has helped me to improve the quality of my storytelling and to develop structured writing patterns; at the same time, I have gained a much deeper knowledge of writing TV series and serials. I can also now write a reasonable treatment. Yvonne is friendly, honest and passionate about the writers she works with, which at times does require the writer to think ruthlessly about their own work. Her passion makes me as a writer want to be the best that I can be and from here anything is possible. – Sally Eastland

She knows exactly how to work with writers – she respects them. All Yvonne’s critiques are designed to help me discover for myself the way forward. She understands what TV producers want and she values creativity – John Abulafia
