Helia Phoenix – writer, and some other things too
I’ve worked mostly in the written word since 2000 as a journalist, editor, writer, fiction, non-fiction, and worked in print, web, and film. I run the We Are Cardiff community project, and currently also working on a documentary film inspired by the website that’s due to hit big screens in spring 2013 – more information about that here: We Are Cardiff – Portrait of a City.
I’m based in Cardiff, which is the capital of Wales. It’s a pretty great city and I’ve got a lot of love for it. I’m also part of the hack/flash group, which engages in community art and other such excuses for fun.
- Undergraduate degree in English Literature at Cardiff University and Berkeley (University of California)
- Masters in Creative Writing from Cardiff University
- Postgraduate Diploma in Web Journalism from the University of Sheffield (through a bursary from the Scott Trust, owners of the Guardian)
