“Georgina is a joy to work with, very accommodating, flexible with deadlines and turns assignments around quickly. She has got to grips with the Canvas8 tone of voice really quickly.”

Are you looking for staff holiday cover for your consumer or b2b magazine, part-time sub-editing or proofreading shifts, help with copy for your website or a speedy turnaround with proofreading a report? Georgina Probert can help.

Georgina is an experienced journalist with more than 10 years’ experience working on consumer and b2b magazines. Since October 2016, she has gone freelance and now offers writing, editing and proofreading services. Her current clients include print magazines, books, trade and marketing reports, online newsletters, blogs and website copy.


So what makes Georgina different from other freelancers?

As a working mum who has a young child, she only takes on part-time bookings (a maximum of three days a week). Many companies are put off by employing remote part-time freelancers – but there are huge advantages! Georgina is able to proofread and edit copy quickly and accurately to tight deadlines, and can turnaround copy in the evenings and at the weekends, ready to be worked on first thing the next morning.

She also takes on last-minute bookings and, if you book her for a remote shift and things change, she can be flexible.

Georgina takes on bookings at short notice. 

She can work on copy and layouts in Word, InDesign (Creative Cloud) and Keynote, as well as on Google Drive.

Georgina’s rates are competitive, as she doesn’t have to pay for travel expenses. She has experience in editing a huge range of material, from medical terminology to trade and marketing reports and features in women’s consumer magazines. She also writes field guides, newsletters, website copy and news stories and features for specialist hobbyist magazines, among other things.
