(Dermot) “…really is an incredible writer/consultant. He is so great to work with. One of the best I’ve worked with.”
~Anonymous, Screenwriter (Ghostwritten TV Pitch)
“I really learned a lot and truly appreciate all your notes.I hope that I every movie I make in my career – that you could talk the story out with me cause I walked away understanding my movie even better. Your tweaks and notes were really great. In an industry that is so cut-throat, it’s so refreshing that someone would lend a helping hand. I only hope we could work again in the future. If there is anyway I could ever help in marketing or publicity for you – would be my pleasure.”
~Keith Black, Screenwriter/Director “Driving Me Crazy“
Special Thanks to Dermot Davis
“With three different versions of my manuscript and three TOCs (table of contents), I was going crazy. Your gifted book doctoring, homework et al, was essential in helping me complete my manuscript. It’s a document that I’m extremely proud of and, as you know, I’ve written a great many documents. I’m thrilled with your services. Thanks again!”

“Dermot Davis is a young, award-winning Irish playwright from Dublin, and if All About Love at An Claidheamh Soluis in Hollywood is an indication, he has a bright future. Davis’ writing is original, highly stylish and, though a bit cynical, affectionate toward his characters” (LA Times Review).
“WOW! Exceeded my expectations. You’ve done a damn fine job sir… and I couldn’t be happier.”
~Y.S., Indie feature film script collaboration
“Boy, Mr. Davis hit it right on the head! I love it! …it is beyond my expectations.”

In addition to freelance writing, screenwriting, or play writing, Dermot Davis provides editing, coaching and consulting services to both emerging and established writers.
As a writing project coach he provides consultation and evaluation to help writers shape their manuscript or writing project. He will review your project and guide you in revising and/or finishing your writing product (book, screen or stage play, short story, article).
His first goal is to help the writer identify the essence of their story and then hone the writing project appropriately, according to genre, medium (book or screen or stage play, etc.) and subject matter.

Evaluation of a complete book manuscript or screenplay, generally takes three to five hours. A partial book manuscript, screenplay, several articles or short stories, takes about two to three hours.
After evaluation, Mr. Davis will provide phone critique and consultation upon the work and craft instruction and then request homework from the author or writer. This homework may include significant revision of the work, including restructuring of the document, the addition of characters, simplification, clarification or complication of story structure, formatting changes or the like.
Additional or ongoing project consultation, via email, Skype or telephone, is available at an hourly or per project rate.
