Testimonials  

Briar Jensen has submitted a number of editorial features to Club Marine magazine. I have found her material to be among the most professionally presented we have received. It requires little or no editing, which is exceptional in my own experience of submitted material from freelancers. She is also punctual with delivery of material and in general is a pleasure to work with. I hope to have more of her work in the magazine in the future.

I have worked with Briar Jensen for more than 12 months through our magazine Adore Animals. Briar is one of my favourite writers to work with and I never have any hesitation in assigning her complex articles. Not only is her writing style clear and concise, Briar grasps concepts easily, shows
initiative, corresponds well with concerned parties and is prompt with deadlines.

Briar takes creative and structural direction about her writing with consideration and has adapted her writing to our style in a remarkably short space of time. She is a conscientious interviewer and is unfailing in her dedication to the end product.

Briar continues to be an important part of our freelance team. I have no hesitation in recommending her for any writing assignment.

Briar Jensen has written a number of shoe-related book reviews for my magazine over a few years now, and I have always found them interesting, fun, informative and easy to read. 

She is a joy to work with as she understands the time restraints of the publishing world, and most importantly, deadlines, and always comes up with the goods. 

Briar anticipates what I might be interested in, and may need, and provides the written and graphic work to suit. I rarely have to change a thing.

Briar Jensen has written quite a number of articles for Modern Boating magazine, the first being published in 1999. Her work is informative, funny and well-written, but best of all from an editors point of view requires little work before being ready for publication.

I thought youd be interested to know, we got a letter from a lady yesterday who bought Lats & Atts for the first time because she saw your Jesse article mentioned on the cover.  She loved the article, loved the magazine and is now getting a subscription.  So thank you!

Briar's report on the fate of the Jesse Martin vessel "Kijana" was informative and sympathetic. The understanding she brought to the subject did a service to the persons involved and made for compelling reading. A rare thing in a journalistic piece. 

 

When Briar writes for laughs she doesn't miss the target. I gave a copy of our publication to a person that hadn't read us before and asked the next day if she had given it a go and if so what article had struck her fancy. She reported that she enjoyed the paper very much and it was Briars article, "Headless" that really tickled her. "I nearly pee'ed myself laughing," she said. Being from a family boat herself, the insight that Briar has and the unique ability to turn painful experience into laughter, connects. That ability to make friends by sharing common experiences isn't all that common and is guaranteed to make loyal readers.

 

It is never a case of if we publish Briars work but where we fit it in.

 

Sincerely, Bob Norson, Editor

I have just re-read your article in Vol 79 of Wellbeing Magazine.  It is a very good read, and extraordinarily well researched, given the lack of information in Australia at the time.  I hope to see many more of your articles on MD in print!
