“As an international multi-award winning writer supported solely through my efforts in the screen industry I am acutely aware that when my script or treatment lands on the desk of a funding body or investor it has but one shot. Therefore, to give it the best possible chance, I pass it through the filter of insightfulness, creativity and keen intelligence which is Fiona Ashe. Without reserve, I recommend her to any position where her formidable talents in script editing and analysis can be called upon.”
— Declan Cassidy, multi-award-winning writer/director, ‘Whatever Turns You On’.
“I feel very lucky to have been given Fiona’s name to assist me as I worked on a film script of my novel. Fiona’s approach was thorough, insightful and honest without being in any way unkind. It was clear that she read and assessed the script with a keen eye and ear, and her advice was crucial. Fiona also recommended several terrific books to help me on this, my first journey into scriptwriting. She has reviewed a further draft with equal professionalism and also had a conference call where each and every issue I had was fully addressed. I would very strongly recommend Fiona and am glad she is part of my ongoing review process.” — Fran Russell Banks, Author of ‘Blown Apart’, winner of the Irish Writers’ Novel Award 2016.
“I am a professional screenwriter who has hired Fiona Ashe to edit two treatments and query letters for agents and production companies. She is a very talented script editor who helped guide my treatments into solid scripts. I would gladly recommend her to anyone seeking help with their work.” — Eileen McAuley, commissioned scriptwriter.
