Testimonials

tattooink“Victoria Gosling is my best and first choice reader. I have huge respect for her judgement and I couldn’t have finished my novel without her.”
Kenneth Macleod, novelist, author of THE INCIDENT, Weidenfeld & Nicolson

 

“The Reader provides not only encouragement but a critical eye which is crucial when developing any work – whether it be a novel, non-fiction or short stories – for publication. Victoria’s able the see the ‘big picture’ or what you are trying to do in your work when you are too close to see it for yourself.”
Brigid Delaney, journalist (MSN, CNN, The Telegraph, Sydney Morning Herald) and author of THIS RESTLESS LIFE, Melbourne University Press and WILD THINGS, Harper Collins

 

“Victoria gives great consideration to others, and was hugely popular in my workshop for her gentle straight-talking and unflagging enthusiasm. I do believe that she genuinely wants the best for the people around her. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
Suzannah Dunn, novelist, author of COMMENCING OUR DESCENT, THE QUEEN OF SUBTLETIES, THE CONFESSION OF KATHERINE HOWARD, Harper Press

 

“Jane’s class was a great motivation for me to shut the F up about writing fiction and just do it. Her approach is all about balance, yin and yang, beer and wine… whatever you want to call it, combining structure with spontaneity, hard work with joking. Basically taking the high drama and sense of ordeal out of the art form. The atmosphere was always supportive and open minded, making it easy to hand in that difficult piece or say that taboo thing. Jane led each class effortlessly and discreetly, letting people shine or reining them gently in when needed. She gave out an energy that showed how much she loved reading as well as writing, learning as well as teaching and I appreciated her honest, generous feedback which made me want to share more.” – Claire Monica Burgess, copywriter in transit

 

“I highly recommend Jane Flett’s writing course. She creates a friendly, open, and engaging atmosphere that makes one feel safe, and even inspired, to take chances and be creative. That’s really the highest compliment I can give: before I took Jane’s class, I wanted to write. Now I am writing.” – Sam Loewenberg
