    Hi Sally
    I have written a screenplay which I’m desperate for some honest advice on. My writer friends are just too darn nice to rely on.

    Would you be willing to throw me some feedback on it? It’s a UK based feature length comedy drama.

    I also run a site for screenwriters which you may like to check out. at http://www.scriptgang.com (my profile on there is JaseFace)

    Either way keep up the excellent work you have a lovely, unaffected , fluid style.

    Hi Jason,

    Sorry for the late reply! If you still need feedback on your script, just send me a message and I’ll drop you a line with my rates.

    Hope it’s going well either way – and glad you’re enjoying the blog!

    Hello Sally,
    I am curious to know how BBC Writersroom recruit script readers and how I might put myself forward for that role? I am experienced and have read and written reports for London-based theatre companies and can provide copies of reports I have written.
    I also write and have also written for the stage and screen.

    Kind regards,
