Working with a tv professional is essential to getting your tv series idea off to a strong creative and commercial start. Working with me in a small and friendly group setting at my cottage in East Sussex we will:

  • Break Story
  • Build character and develop their arcs
  • Shape your series outline 
  • Write your Treatment 

I will take you through my process taking each writers’ project individually and I will show you how you can pull out your themes, your message and identify your narrative through line.

Using my tried and tested Treatment Template as a guide, I will take you through the treatment writing process and then you will write your own treatment.

I live in a 300 year old cottage in a pretty village 1hr. 10mins train ride from London Charing Cross.

We start 10am with an hour lunch provided and finish at 4pm with tea and coffee breaks in between.

The atmosphere will be convivial, productive and fun.

I have 30 years experience of working with writers and their projects; let me take yours through my process to make your project as good as it can be.

Once I had a first draft, I honestly couldn’t tell if it was any good. I hadn’t written for TV before and had no idea what the structure for an episode was…I knew I needed to get some expert eyes on it, so I went to Yvonne… She’s had 30+ years in the industry and seemed to fundamentally understand TV drama. She was the right person to help. I’d had lots of positive feedback about how strong my opening pages were. I was really, really proud of them. And one of Yvonne’s first comments was, “the opening’s got to change”…I trusted her though, and she was right…


JEM DRYER Delegate/script editor If you ever want to see a real wizard at work, sign up for Yvonne Grace’s Script Editing for Television course right this second. The way Yvonne can take apart a script is genuinely dazzling to watch, and you can’t help but feel yourself becoming ten times the script editor you were just by watching her process. There is no explanation for being able to cover every aspect of script analysis and editing, storylining, delivering notes to writers, and understanding the script editor’s role in production in only four days other than magic.
