Georgia takes the extraordinarily complicated and transforms it into something which is simple and accessible without being patronising. What's more, she's very fun to work with and highly communicative. My best kept secret!
Alice Thwaite, founder, Hattusia
Georgia combines the qualities of curiosity, humility, and gregariousnes in everything she does. She builds relationships of trust and asks highly intelligent questions that unlock the correct next actions on a project. Plus, she's an excellent writer on anything tech, data, and society.
Jo Kerr, Director of Impact & Innovation, Turn2us
Georgia makes B2B content FUN. B2B has a bad rap: those hundred-page white papers; dry content only for those niche industries. She is the B2B content creator everyonen needs, turning complex topics into simple writing anyone can understand, and above all, adding colour to industries that need it the most. I can't recommend her enough!

Georgia is a pro at taking your shambles of copy and reshaping into a charismnatic story which captures the unspoken essence of your desires. She did this with my game, and could do it with yours...

what is in this folder.txt
At the moment the most important thing I'm making is MUTUAL DISLIKE, a zine of flash-fiction printed inside a tabloid newspaper. Special bonus surprise: it's free. "Fiction is my passion," said Georgia. ALICE is a story with images and, honestly, I made it as a secret santa gift MODERN LIVING is one of the first books I made, and it explains how to live a modern life ABINOX is some long-fiction inpired by this album of 8bit music. Each chapter is named after a track on the album. It's about hedonistic space travellers, I guess. PEPSI KING is s series of stories I wrote on a typewriter, all of which fit onto a single side of A4, and followed very similar themes. E.g. there was always a king in it, and usually something happens with pepsi The SER is a personal anthology of short and flash fiction. It was my first purge of ideas after I decided that writing was a thing I really enjoyed. My writing is much less serious than this now. GIRL MOTHER FATHER is about a girl who runs away from home and receives weird notes from her ghost mother, and annoying letters from her inept father

random crap that i made
Look I'm sorry you can't drag these icons, that would break the rules
I like making random crap sometimes; it has literally no use but it's fun to mess around with or look at for like five minutes. I'm not very good at coding so like, DON'T look at the code and DO expect it to be broken in some way. Sorry etc. STUFF WHERE I HAD TO WRITE CODE: *Boardgame name generator *Phone battery simulator *click for fish *movie sequel generator I also wrote the code for this very website, so again, sorry if stuff breaks during your dynamic online experience
I'm a freelance writer. If you want to *do business* you should probably have a look at a slightly more proper CV I do all kinds of cool writing and research: I've produced reports for Turn2us (helping them with their data strategy) and Hattusia (about how to build tech with ethics in mind). I also work with Alix Dunn to make her newsletter really good. What I like to write about: everything that is going wrong in the tech industry. See my Substack, Horrific/Terrific, which rates the week in tech on a five-point scale. Likes: + Computery nostalgia + Things that are broken and don’t work properly (reminds us that we suck sometimes, and not everything has to be functional to be acceptable) + Dystopia (social media is in charge of you, we’re all going to die at the hands of trans-human police, etc.) Dislikes: - Machine recommendations (do not presume to ‘know me’; you are an algorithm) - Gender reveal cakes - Healing crystals (it’s fine they’re just pretty rocks but they don’t do healing so please stop it, Gwenyth) My writing style goes from so casual that it’s almost rude and grammatically incorrect (sorry not sorry), to delightfully playful, and then sometimes I take it to some really opulent places where I use words like ‘unbeknownst’ and ‘agilify’. Here's like a list of some of the stuff I’ve written: PUBLISHED WORKS ============== * MUTUAL DISLIKE is published by me and is a quarterly zine of short stories. Issue 4 is available digitally if you can't wait for a paper issue... * GDFC MAG is a quarterly magazine run by my football team, Goal Diggers FC. I contribute opinion pieces in response to the theme * MODERN LIVING was published by AND Public and is a book. * THE DEATH OF JOHNNY CASH was published by Good Comics and is a piece of short fiction. * A POISONOUS COMFORT IS WHAT I DESIRE TODAY was published by Novelty Magazine and is a piece of short fiction. * THE TRUMAN SHOW PRODUCTION TEAM EMAIL EXCHANGE was published by Novelty Magazine and is a piece of experimental fiction. * ALICE was published on Literati Pulp and is a piece of short fiction SCREENPLAYS =========== * COLD COFFEE: A couple have a joint birthday and realise they hate each other when they exchange gifts. I got funding to produce this, so I did. * ZED AND THE GANG: A science magician tries to reverse the end of the universe, and does so with his best friend by his side, who is a pot of gravy. * THE PINK ROOM: a woman keeps spacing out and finding herself in a pink room with no doors or windows. The reason behind this will shock and upset you. * FIONA AT THE PARTY: a young woman goes to a house party with her best friend and is subject to series of micro-aggressions from different men at the party STAGE PLAYS ========== *EARTH II: This story follows a self-righteous politician trying to rally everyone together during their fresh start on Earth II, which is the planet that humanity had to escape to after we made the Earth (Earth I) uninhabitable. *JEAN’S JOB: two sisters live together and one of them makes money by hacking around and making money on OG usernames. The other one has a ‘normal’ job and is extremely judgemental.
