‘Lucy is an incredible mentor who provides constructive advice which transforms your understanding of the craft and how to utilise it to convey your story in the best way possible.’ – Hina Malik
‘I would not have five published works, and another two on the way, if it were not for Lucy V Hay. My career took off shortly after I met her and this was 100% because I listened to Lucy’s advice and followed Bang2write religiously. If you want to succeed, Lucy can help.’ – Emma Pullar
‘Lucy is invariably my first stop when I’m looking for script analysis. I can recommend her most highly.’ – Pete Spencer
‘I got to know Lucy V Hay through LondonSWF’s Talent Campus, where she was my mentor. I soon realised that not only is she a brilliant writer and blogger, but a fantastic mentor as well. I soaked in her advice, listened to her suggestions and read/ watched all the books/ movies that she recommended. And what a difference it has made, not just to my writing but also to how I perceive myself as a writer … Talent Campus may have ended, but I know I’m going to look up to her as my mentor all my life.’ – Hansa Dasgupta
‘I worked with Lucy during my second semester at the IFS International Film School, Cologne. Lucy helped me brainstorm for ideas for my episode and worked with me to polish the idea further. During the process Lucy provided me with thorough and detailed feedback to improve my spec script all across the way from structure, character development, and content. I enjoyed working with Lucy, her contribution has reminded me how essential structure is in the storytelling process and how important it is to plan your work ahead of time to come up with great stories. I look forward to working with Lucy in the near future.’ – Motaz H. Motar
‘Lucy is a very thorough script editor and offers the right things to be considered in taking a screenplay to the next stage. She makes observations of relevance and has a good eye for assisting with the unravelling of story, characters and plot.’ – Will Dingli
‘Lucy is witty, conscientious and brilliant at script analysis.’ – Mark Morris
‘Lucy helped me to get the best out of my project, pointing out where improvements might be made in an expert, guiding and supportive manner. I highly recommend her script reading and feedback services. She is also a shining example to follow as a communicator and organiser.’ – Dee Chilton
