Previous Work


  • Clare is a great editor. I received my manuscript with the right changes that did not take away the pace of the story. She gave me some great tips as well and you can see she is focused on improving your manuscript and not looking to make an extra buck out of a client. I totally recommend her and I am sure to bring more of my writing her way!

    Yahaira Lidia Reyes Jimenez ( writer)
  • I have been working with Clare on my forthcoming book ” In A Lifetime from Hozier to U2″ for some months now. Clare’s Editing Services has been first class, efficient and most helpful. I would highly recommend her to any aspiring writer.

    Johnny Lappin (Music Publisher/Writer. Ireland)
  • I can highly recommend Clare and her team. I worked excellently with her. She edits your script, synopsis very well, has a look at your log line and makes the whole script ready for submission.

    Leotien Parlevliet (Screenwriter. Netherlands)
  • Clare’s been a great help working on a recent book pet project. As well as the editing services, I have valued the positive encouragement. That has been the most needed.

    Stephen O' Regan (Co-Founder of Balcony TV/Director/Writer. NYC)
  • “I’ve always loved the phrase ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’For the second time I have called on Clare Keogh and her magnificent team to help with edits on my second book “The Sweet Adventures of Henry P. Twist – The Island of Milk and Honey.” What more can I say that I, or anyone else, hasn’t already said about Clare and her team. They are, without a doubt, top drawer. So easy to work with, patient and they know their craft! That is why I have called on Clare and Ian to help get the first drafts of the screenplay for the movie “The Sweet Adventures of Henry P. Twist,” ready. Thanks a million, Editing Services!

    Bruce Van Alstyne (Writer/Screenwriter. Texas)
  • “Back in 2014, I engaged Clare to assist with script editing and coverage on my feature screenplay ‘Barking Mad’, a dark comedy/thriller road movie, set in Ireland and all taking place over one day. Clare and her associate Ian’s notes were superb and really helped me to take it to the next level. Last year, they worked their magic again on another screenplay of mine – ‘Love Infernal’, a neo-noir, a psychological thriller which just received glowing praise from a reader/script editor with the illustrious Black List (https://blcklst.com/). I can’t recommend Clare’s ‘Editing Service’ highly enough to all screenwriters in need of that utterly essential objective, learned gaze to help put a professional polish on their scripts.”

    John Dawson (Screenwriter/Director. Dublin)
  • Thank you so much for your screenplay coverage! It’s exactly what I wanted and needed. I will definitely recommend your service. I will definitely be a return client as well. Thank you again and it was a pleasure working with you.

    Zach Allen (Screenwriter-Evil Iguana Productions. Chicago)
  • I have been at my writing for many years and have not been successful. But since I came across Editing Services I have never looked back. The personal attention I have received was excellent and I feel now that my writing is back on track, many thanks to Clare at Editing Services.

    John Scully (Writer)
  • Clare and her team were an inspiration to work with in the development of my projects. She just makes it happen!

    John Rossister (Writer)
  • I cannot say enough regarding Clare’s ability and genius in producing my comedy Lordie. Her expertise and patience allowed the book to be published internationally. She continues to be an inspiration to new writers like myself.

    Jake Brennan ( Writer)
  • Clare did an expert job at proofing two manuscripts for me. The Presentation Book and The Communication Book. I found her to be professional and passionate. The work she delivered for me was of the highest quality. Her client care is excellent and I really enjoyed working with her. I would highly recommend Clare and Editing Services.

    Emma Ledden ( Writer)
  • “Thank you, Clare/Ian, for the excellent coverage you provided on “The Good, the Bad, and the Irish.” Your notes were thorough and your insights invaluable! I’ve used many screenwriting consultant services over the years, and yours ranks highly among them. What sets you apart is your high level of client care.”

    Jes Sugrue (Screenwriter.Victoria Canada)
