Hello! 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. Here are some snippets about me: 

  • I hold two first-class degrees and I am a trained English, Media and Film teacher. I have worked as a journalist, travel writer, copyeditor and translator for various online and print publications in the UK and in Latin America. 
  • I am happy to work in British or US English, and am well versed in various style guides.
  • Content is king: I love helping companies with engaging content and SEO. 
  • One of the coolest things I've done is editing Little Cookery, an innovative cookbook for young children.
  • I'm proud of the copyediting of climate change documents I've done for the Coalition for Urban Transitions.
  • 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 your needs:  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."
