freelance writer & 
editor

for all things text: georgia platman


Hi, I'm a wordsmith based in the UK. I mainly write and edit, but please get in touch to find out how I can help you whip any piece of writing into shape. 

I hold two first-class degrees (BA and BSc) and I am a trained English, Media and Film teacher (PGCE). I have worked as a journalist, travel writer, copyeditor and translator for various online and print publications in the UK and in Latin America, including Rough Guides, teleSUR, Arty, Media Magazine, and Ñan. I am happy to work in British or U.S. English, and am well versed in various style guides, including AP. I was developmental editor on Little Cookery, an innovative cookbook for young children, and I've done copyediting for NGOs like the Coalition for Urban Transitions, among others. To complement my freelance work, I do a lot of creative writing, with two books and a screenplay underway. 

Please don't hesitate to get in touch for a commitment-free chat about what I can do for you:  hello@georgiaplatman.com.

writing: copy that pops

Need a freelance writer? I can turn my hand to whatever style you need. I've got a wealth of experience. With two first-class degrees, a PGCE, and plenty of professional writing experience under my belt, you can be confident in my ability to communicate via the written word.

editing: it's personal

I love working with others to help make a piece of writing shine. Whether I'm proofreading, doing a political risk review, or developmental editing, I always treat my work holistically and pick up tiny mistakes while never losing sight of the bigger picture.

translation: hablo español

Worried about a translation disaster? I can translate your Spanish-language texts into accurate, elegant English. I have a degree in Spanish and Latin American Studies, and I lived and worked in Latin America for several years.

lovely things others have said about me...


"It is such a pleasure working with Georgia. Her critical mind, sharp eye for detail, and fantastic ideas meant I had the confidence to get my book out into the world; Little Cookery would simply not have been made were it not for her brilliant support and encouragement as an editor."
                                                                                            – Lottie Aldarwish, author of Little Cookery

"I've worked with Georgia a few times over the past decade. She's a great travel writer – her copy sparkles – and she's also got a forensic mind when it comes to coaching people: she recently revamped my CV and helped me draw out my skills."
