Hi, I'm Ben Hazell. I used to blog here about the media, but now I work there I don't write here anymore.
I'm the Web Publishing Editor at - I find better ways to tell stories, developing tools, training and practice for journalists.

You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, LibraryThing, Spotify, and occasionally writing on

The Blog

Rarely updated now, used during Journalism MA at the University of Sheffield.

Imperfect and tense

Friday, 28 March 2008
Below the fold is a round-up of everything I wrote on placement at the Telegraph in the last two weeks.
I was only writing one or two pieces a day for the site, and some of my stuff was later replaced by other journalists (we usually throw the basics up online while we wait for the experts to pitch in), but I think it's a decent slab of work.
Some of them are quite funny.

I'm back now anyway, so normal service will resume shortly, including:
Blunkett - "two thirds of the shadow cabinet were..."
Cameron - The hush
Photoshop - Leave me never
Byron - Suprisingly dull
Liger Vs Pizzly
Cage-fighting toddlers on YouTube/Bebo

'Kurt Cobain smoked oregano with his mum'. Truly inspirational. What a brilliant article to have in your portfolio.
