"Jojo was an excellent Editor and a pleasure to work with, as she was efficient, extremely organised and reliable...and she worked hard with the writers on each issue."
- Silvina De Vita, freelance graphic designer and former CALMzine Art Director
"She describes herself as a thinker, blogger and baker but she is also a very good writer. With a good sense of rhythm, her pieces are enlightening and insightful. Ms Furnival is truthful even when that is a difficult quality to embrace."
- Jane Hardy, freelance journalist on the Sunday Times, former Features Editor of SHE Magazine
"Working with Jo was brilliant, it really was. She was helpful in her role as Editor, offering advice, tips and ways to improve but always allowing the writer to do what they're best at - writing!"
- Luke Chandley, freelance writer
