Writer. 

Activist.

Pun fanatic.

Hi. I'm Polina — a Canadian writer who aims to amplify marginalised voices in my daily life. I do this through my journalism, copywriting, editorial work, and activism. 

Over the past nine years, I've held leading editorial positions at media companies, innovation labs, and boutique design studios. I've written for publications such as VICE and openDemocracy. And I've developed a portfolio of diverse copywriting clients who call me when they're looking for three things: an editorially-driven approach, sharp and quick writing, and an ethical backbone. 

My activism focuses on sex workers' rights. I'm a Board Member of The Red Van NGO; we provide a mobile safe space for sex workers in Copenhagen. I also write and edit for Bedside Productions, a company that produces films and content to manifest different takes on sex, eroticism, and intimacy. Last but not least, I'm the founder of BITE ME — a newsletter about food and feminism.

Fun facts: I like the shape of collarbones, and dislike the sickly scratchiness of writing in pencil. 

Based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
