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,
initiative, corresponds well with concerned parties and is prompt with
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.

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.

world, and most importantly, deadlines, and always comes up with the goods.

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 editor’s point
of view requires little work before being ready for publication.
Ian Macrae, Editor

magazine a number of times. Briar submitted her articles by deadline and the
articles themselves were always well written, thoughtful and entertaining -

thought you’d 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!”

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

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!”
