« Martin Hirst was one of my lecturers at Edith Cowan University. He is passionate about journalism and about producing good journalists and this makes him a highly engaging teacher. Martin made me more confident in my abilities as a thinker and writer - I will always owe him for the time and effort he put into helping to form me as a journalist.
