I learned a lot from working with Yvonne. Having a disciplined structure to follow and deadlines to meet, ensured I would be motivated and focused each week of the course. It was great to get Yvonne’s feedback on my work. Her suggestions have made a big difference in improving the quality of my script.

I found it really helpful to have a disciplined process for the weeks before drafting began, with an experienced independent reader who can view it through the eye of the market I want to reach. The formal treatment stage is useful in terms of helping to refine the proposition, and the breakdown in clarifying what the first draft of the script should attempt.


Insightful, exciting and enjoyable are but a few words to describe my experience working with Yvonne. The 6 week development course is such a worthwhile course if you want to; understand how TV treatments are formed, develop an idea further and sharpen the structure of your material.

Yvonne was able to extrapolate and tell me things about my treatment that I couldn’t see, but was trying to express and through brainstorming together via Skype the story was starting to develop into something I couldn’t do by myself. It’s very difficult to create a solid treatment but with the help from Yvonne made sure I stuck on the path until the end goal was achieved – a great story with interesting characters.


Six of the quickest weeks I’ve ever spent writing.  The pace is intense and matched with Yvonne’s expertise, incredible eye for detail and supportive manner, I’ve simply made breakthrough after breakthrough after breakthrough.  Highly recommended.


What strongly appealed to me on the course was Yvonne’s deep understanding of the dna of television as an industry and profession, it workings and what success looks like. I really valued getting to work immediately. The course didn’t feel drawn out and had pace and momentum. I felt constantly challenged.
My strengths and weakness identified by Yvonne were accurate and highlighted straight away, which demonstrated Yvonne’s experience and focus. I was able to start working through these.

Yvonne gave me what I look for in a tutor – knowledge, experience, confidence, supportive guidance and humour.

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.
