Gill Smith
Gill Smith - Comedy Writer & Performer

I'm a TAPS trained script-reader, having attended their Script Editing course in September 2003.

The course led directly to script reading work for the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond, specialising in comedy.

I am happy to read scripts for broadcasters, theatres or other organisations, or directly for individuals to give feedback and guidance. I am also happy to go beyond basic reading and reporting, to work with writers to improve their scripts.



I've recently also been asked to judge writing competitions.

  • I judged Reading Writers' sketch competition, running 'before' and 'after' sessions to inspire and then give feedback.
  • I am also a member of Slough Writers Group and a few of us judged and gave feedback on stories written by another writers' group.
