Words and ideas for brands, publications and people.


Salwa Benaissa is a freelance writer, copywriter and brand strategist based in Prague, Czech Republic.


Hi, I’m Salwa.

I’m a freelance writer and communication strategist.

I provide copywriting services for brands, including content marketing and campaign strategy. I also write stories for media publications as a freelance contributor.

My path into communications began with studying journalism in London in 2009. I went on to spend two years gaining experience in PR agencies before relocating to Prague in late 2014, where I began to work in marketing and advertising.

Words and ideas have remained my professional focus ever since. I’ve worked with big ad agencies and small start-ups, as an external and in-house copywriter, on accounts ranging from retail to automotive.

I’m passionate about literature as well as performance. I trained as a stage actor and still work as a voice-over actor (one day, I will actually get around to putting a reel together…).

I’m now based in Berlin but open to working on projects anywhere in the world.
