My name is Hila Shachar and I’m a writer and lecturer in English literature at De Montfort University. I live and work in Leicester, England. I have extensive experience producing online/print marketing and PR materials, journalism, blogging, magazine writing, copy-writing, proofing, editing, and more.

I work as a writer for The Australian Ballet and contribute regularly to their official blog, Behind Ballet. I also write for Underscore Magazine and Notes on Metamodernism, as well as being part of the Editorial Team.

I’m available for all manner of writing, editing, research and marketing work. So please email me at hila.shachar@dmu.ac.uk if you’re interested. I am also available to comment and offer expertise for media pieces in my research areas, and have done so before. Please visit my university page for more details.
