About Me

I'm a freelance journalist and editor with 15 years experience in print and television. I write for titles such as The Times, The Independent, The Guardian, Psychologies Magazine as well as a wealth of corporate publications. I cover education, careers, parenting and families. As a former Reuters journalist and BBC news and features producer, I can master a brief and deliver accurate copy promptly.

On the commercial side of writing, I offer a professional, friendly service; including writing and refreshing websites, blogging, copywriting, editing, proofreading, and press releases.

"Helena Pozniak is a delight to work with - her copy is always clear and succinct, but at the same time lively and interesting. What's more, she has never - to my knowledge - missed a deadline, and is always full of ideas for possible editorial content." Ben Ross, Travel Editor, The Independent

"It isn’t easy to tailor a message that helps us connect with our clients; that’s when we contact Helena. She’s efficient, accurate, and responsive. We rely on her often to make sure our message is spot on." Ole Rollag, Perfecta Partners
