About the off duty journalist

I’m Helen Perkins – a 23-year-old trainee journalist living in Lancashire. I am Business Editor and news reporter for The Westmorland Gazette and have been a regular writer for the Nottingham Evening Post, the Birmingham Mercury, Liverpool Echo, Derby Telegraph and Lancaster Guardian. My international feature was shortlisted in the 2009 UNESCO Journalism Competition.
I have a first class degree in English Literature and a first class postgraduate diploma in Print Journalism.
I’m also a keen painter and my exhibitions in Lancaster and Derby have both resulted in numerous commissions. You can view my work at www.helenmaryperkins.com.
