Diane Messias
As a professional writer and script editor for the past 30 years, Diane possesses a wealth of experience in all types of drama and creative writing, whilst specialising in comedy.
Whatever your specific needs, her analysis is swift, practical, and based on solutions rather than problems.
She is particularly known for engaging in an individual way with every script, rather than affecting a 'one size fits all' approach.
