“As an amateur fiction writer, Britta’s detailed feedback really helped to guide me and make me aware of my weaknesses and strengths. Britta also has a warm spirit. I like that she has also taught fiction writing and is a published author so that gave me confidence in her feedback. I realised that while the concept for my novel is a good one, that the work of editing is an entire other level of work. Britta helped me to understand that writing is like making bread one has to keep kneading it until it gets the right shape and all of the lumps and bumps are gone. Also that at some point, one has to let go and move onto other parts of their writing or progress may not be made.” –Ola O. author of women’s fiction Amira’s Choice
“Britta has taught me how to look deeper into my characters and make them live and breathe on paper. I had the horrible habit of not finishing my stories and with her writing exercises and compassionate direction, I completed each story. She was able to bring the writer-thinker out if me. The most important skill I learned was how to develop multiple story endings. I felt liberated and not stuck to one ending.” –Eddie Bujans, short story author
“I learned so much: keeping a consistent POV (point of view), setting the scene, getting rid of unnecessary detail, being precise. The best gift from Britta was validation of what I was doing right. I loved how she organised her feedback into manageable chunks: story development, voice, prose, etc. It made tackling the revisions a lot less daunting. –Chuck Preston Jr. author of Road Burn
“Britta Jensen was immensely helpful to me as a tutor when I began to struggle in my courses last semester. She is knowledgeable in a wide variety of subjects and was able to help me with all of my classes. Her writing and editing skills were especially invaluable in constructing my papers. She is professional, timely, and I can’t wait to work with her again.” –Karen Rackleff, University student
“The class was so rich with ideas and wonderful exercises. Our group will be talking about her ideas for weeks to come, I’m sure! I think each of us pulled out different nuggets that resonated with us — ideas that were timely and valuable to where we each are in our writing process. One idea I loved was the “iceberg” image, and how we so much of what we is just for us, the writer. We have to be more selective and strategic when it comes to deciding what to actually show our reader. I also loved the advice to not focus so much on writing and rewriting the beginning (which is something so many of us do!) but instead to try to finish a draft and then go back to rework the beginning.”–Maureen Turner Carey, author & librarian, Westbank Library
“I like the way Britta provided a mechanism to explore what a character might do, not necessarily in the context of the story, but just behave if I extracted them from the story and watched them go.”–Sam Ritter, author
