“Kath Dolan is smart, thorough, proactive and eloquent.”

– Jacquie Byron, managing editor of The Place Economy, Hoyne

“Kath Dolan is an accomplished writer and her work never ceases to surprise and delight. Reliable, hard-working and admirable in her passion for the creative industries, I cannot recommend Kath enough to anyone looking for captivating content.”

– Stacey Bennett, marketing manager, Illustrators Australia

“Kath is a terrific writer. She has worked on several projects for me this year, including copy for a brochure and profiles of academics. She has always submitted on time, and her work is very thoroughly researched, well crafted and edited. I highly recommend her.”

–  Chloe Smethurst, PR and communications, Monash University

“Kath was selected as a participant in the inaugural Craft Writers’ Program in 2016.  This competitive process aimed to uncover creative talent who brought new and diverse perspectives to the craft community and helped craft writing to reach new audiences. Kath came to the program bringing a strong journalistic background and a level of professionalism that made her an extremely valuable participant in the program.”

–  Kim Goodwin, Project Coordinator, Craft Victoria

“Kath Dolan has been writing for Green magazine for eight years. In this time she has regularly delivered engaging and well researched articles on time, every time.”

– Tamsin O’Neill, editor of Green magazine

“Kath Dolan is a regular journalist for AEU News magazine, the official magazine of the Australian Education Union, which is distributed to 50,000 educators in Victoria. She is a gifted writer who can turn her hand to a wide variety of subjects – whether it’s an article on Muslim speed-dating, transgender representation in primary school literature, or a feature on the TAFE system. Kath is a true professional; she conducts thorough research; takes the time to drill down to eke out the most compelling stories for interviews; understands her audience; delivers consistently on time and writes to brief. She also goes above and beyond to liaise with photographers and provide ‘options’ for angles and ideas for additional content. I would recommend Kath in a heartbeat; we are lucky to have her as a regular contributor to our magazine and have had great feedback from our members.”

– Suzi Taylor, Editor AEU News
