What they say...

"For many years, Kira Coley has written feature articles for the pages of Marine Technology Reporter, the world largest circulation b2b magazine serving the global subsea industry. To put it simply her work is without compare, as she readily generates unique story ideas and delivers copy and images that regularly fill the centre feature spot and cover. Kira is a responsible and professional contributor, and she gets my highest recommendation."

Gregory R. Trauthwein, Editor & Associate Publisher, Marine Technology Reporter (MarineTechnologyNews.com)

"Kira Coley produces high-quality content with an ear for what will capture the reader. As our go to science communicator, she has to be an expert on every topic she tackles, and she always immerses herself in the subject. Ms Coley also understands where the story is so that every feature she writes is more than informative; it's entertaining. Lastly, she is reliable, consistent, and always on schedule, something that makes my job easy. I don't have to manage her; she just gets the job done. Highly recommended."

Greg Leatherman, Editor of ECO magazine

"Kira Coley once again graces our pages, and in fact has quickly become one of our 'go to' regular contributors for compelling features on the technology driving the industry forward, faster"
