Jana Poncarova

I write. And I blog about it.

I am a freelance journalist, copywriter and novelist. My niche is industry, finance, power engineering and construction. I am the author of two published historical literary novels and as a novelist I love Second World War stories.

Writing is a never ending path for me. I can’t imagine a day without a cup of coffee and at least one word written down. I meet my inspiration on the road. That’s why I carry #writerontheroad in my car.

Journalist

I have been writing for online and printed magazines since 2009. You can read my articles on the Czech financial news at E15 or Hospodarske noviny. I interview businessmen and businesswomen for Prumysl Dnes. In the past I worked as an editor in chief for the online magazine Nazeleno.cz and printed magazine Inteligentni budovy. I am member of Czech Syndicate of Journalists.

Copywriter

I help my clients to narrate their stories on websites. I believe in the power of storytelling. Check out some of the recent websites with my texts such as Jipka, Gabiony Group or JPV Architekt. I write texts in Czech and English.

Author

After a decade of writer’s block, I discovered my passion for narration again and I finished my first novel Podbrské ženy which was published in 2018. A year later, my second novel Eugenie based on a true story appeared on the market (read one chapter or check out reviews). My third novel Alžběta a Nina was published in 2020.

My first literary document Girls of the First Czechoslovak Republic (Děvčata první republiky) was published in 2020. I cooperated on the book with photographer Dita Pepe and editor Barbora Baronova. This documentary publication brings together eight stories of women born in the 1920s.
