Experienced freelance journalist and copywriter for hire

Helen MacBean, Freelance Security CopywriterAre you looking for a professional, reliable freelance writer with over nine years’ experience?

I’ve written on a wide range of topics for magazines, websites, multi-million pound companies, major blogs and public sector organisations.

My main areas of expertise include: crime, social issues, security, women’s interest, public sector, PR/marketing and community.

My clients and editors love the fact that I take the stress out of projects:

“Helen assimilates briefs swiftly, delivering reliably against deadlines and making rational recommendations where improvements can be made. She is organised, calm and optimistic and is the perfect confidante and complement to less restrained personalities, particularly in high risk and frenetic environments such as policing.” (Grace Lovelass, former communications manager at Dorset Police)

This means that you can trust me to produce accurate, fact-checked copy to deadline, keeping you informed of progress along the way.

During my career, my writing has (among many other things):

  • led to more than 1,000 people registering to attend a conference in the space of just a few weeks;
  • more than doubled hits to a campaign web page, again in the space of just a few weeks;
  • encouraged tens — if not hundreds — of domestic abuse, sexual violence and honour-based abuse victims to get help and leave abusive situations.
