Access Support 

"I wanted to say thank you so much for your help :) as someone with ADHD who was diagnosed later in life your assistance really helped me realise how important it is for me to leverage the support accessible to me...I often refer to how great I felt with your support when speaking to people."
Ebisiemen Ajayi, Singer and Songwriter

"I am absolutely over the moon! I saw the results for DYCP and...my name is on the list! This means so so SO much to me and it is, without a doubt, thanks to the application you wrote. I am so grateful to you for the time and effort you put in on my behalf as this funding will make such a difference to my work and confidence in my field. I'm a bit lost for words to be honest but I just wanted to say thankyou."
- Katie Stevens, Musician


Editing and Proofreading 

"Sarah's script feedback was thoughtful and constructive. She identified errors in my work, but also offered resolutions; opening doors for me creatively, rather than hurting my confidence. Going into the next draft, I feel encouraged and inspired.
Sarah has a great understanding of story and structure, but also a keen eye for spelling and grammar. She understands the craft and articulates her thoughts well
."
- David Campion, Writer and Director

"I wrote a screenplay for the first time in five years back in June 2019, and due to the content and writing primarily female characters, Sarah was able to refocus motivation for my characters and help with the inaccuracies in my dialogue. Sarah will be my first point of call once I move on to my next writing project."
- Liam Regan, Writer, Director and Actor
