Freelance Journalism


I love words. Whether it’s straight news journalism or creative copywriting, words have a unique power to influence, impress, motivate and inform.

One of the most important things to understand is that different occasions require different words, and different styles of writing. The demands of the web are different to print, and writing speeches and keynote addresses is a skill in itself.

Philip O’Connor can help you find the right words to express your ideas and captivate your customers and co-workers.

This kind of freelance journalism and copywriting does exactly that- it gives you the freedom to pick and choose what kind of copy you need, and when you need it.

If you’re looking for a flexible, knowledgeable freelance journalist in Scandinavia, you’ve come to the right place.

At home with everything from politics and economic stories to sport and human interest, Philip O’Connor lives in Stockholm (the self-proclaimed capital of Scandinavia).

With contacts in every major city and knowledge of local languages, he can be on the scene of a major event quicker than most.

And on his regular visits to Ireland, Philip continues to produce stories of interest from across the spectrum.

Like all good freelance journalists, he keeps up-to-date with events in Scandinavia, Ireland and the wider world and is often working on the big stories long before anyone has even picked up the phone.

A Swedish driver’s licence and experience of driving in winter conditions doesn’t do any harm either.

Then there’s the kit – Philip never leaves home without a bag packed with cameras, lenses, HD video dictaphones and all the other toys that a freelance multimedia journalist could conceivably need.



Past and present clients include: Reuters, the BBC, Vattenfall AB, Tobii Assistive Technologies, The Irish Times, The Irish Independent, The Irish Daily Star, The Irish Mail On Sunday, Gill and MacMillan, The Swedish Institute, Tourism Ireland, Bord Bia, JG Communication, HKM Media and many more.
