‘Victoria was one of my original writers and she helped me create the arts section of The Big Issue. Clever, resourceful, bright and full of curiosity she was a breath of fresh air.'  

The Founder of The Big Issue, Lord John Bird

“Victoria understands that each business has a unique voice. She tapped into our style and made our press releases and newsletters welcoming, interesting and easy to read.
"She also wrote entertaining web content and reviews for us, whilst still retaining a professional feel - a valuable balance to achieve. We were very happy with the results and subsequent positive feedback from clients.”
Tim Taylor, Director, T3 Limited and (formally) Razorcuts Ltd

‘From her earliest days working with me helping launch one of the UK’s biggest selling publications, Victoria has shown how her unique writing approach can achieve results beyond that of any ordinary writer. 

'Her extraordinary grasp for detail and factual accuracy and style combines to give her work that extra special lift. I have no hesitation in recommending Victoria’s work for its brilliance and insight.’  

Phil Ryan, Managing Director, Storm Productions London


“Victoria McGuin has the gift of writing. Working as a writer and sub-editor for the Hinterland Times, there is no doubt Victoria's talent has helped us secure QCPA Best Newspaper in Country Queensland twice in the last few years.

“Victoria also proof reads our other publication, Rainbow Beach Cooloola Coast Community News, which under her scrutiny, won the QCPA 2016 Journalistic Excellence award.

“Efficient and creative, Victoria summons headlines and introductions with ease. Victoria interviews clients, including business owners to create interesting pieces, with the right balance in advertorials.

"Clients applaud her work - many testimonials we receive are due to Victoria's translation of people's tales into engaging stories. Managing deadlines, building relationships within our community and producing high quality content, Victoria is an asset to our team.” 

Michelle Gilmore – Owner, Hinterland Times


“Great job. You are a very good story teller Victoria. I was in management in a daily newspaper for 28 years, and it wasn’t very often you came across a writer who writes a story in a fashion that the normal reader can relate to and follow easily. You are a person who writes to their audience. Well done.”

Philip Wilson - Hinterland Times feature feedback

Hi Victoria, Thank you so much for such a beautiful and articulate piece. It makes us so proud to be doing what we do, especially when we read it from someone else’s perspective. I can definitely see why you are a writer, such a gift for the written word. Thanks for coming to visit us and we can’t wait to see it published.

Vicci Oliver, Co-founder of Where the Wildlings Grow

"Victoria, congratulations for a great article in the Hinterland Times on the “Toy Boys” from all at the Woodies.

'The article was well received and had been edited as we asked, so we are very grateful for the coverage and your efforts. I would like to add that many of the Woodies were commenting on the professionalism of the HT approach to this article.

'I guess that journos don’t get too many accolades but for you, here’s some. “Thank you!”’

Trevor Jorgensen, Publicity, Blackall Range Woodcrafters Guild


"Congratulations for an excellent publication. It is a pleasure to read the well written articles, Especially as there are no mistakes, either spelling or grammar.  It makes it so easy not having to read something 2 or 3 times so as to understand it.  The subjects of the articles are so diverse and interesting, and such a change from the daily news.  People are so fascinating, aren’t they?

"I always take some with me whenever I go down to the coast, and the people there really enjoy them  too. Many thanks to all of you for such a great magazine."

P. Owens, Landsborough
