Joanna Lester-George


Thank you for visiting the portfolio of Joanna Lester-George. I am a British Freelance Writer who has lived and travelled all over the world, and who has made India my main HQ since 2006. I have a strong background in creative writing, and studied both English B.A. Hons at Goldsmiths University of London, before further enhancing my skill set with an L.L.B Bachelor of Laws at the University of Sussex. I have been writing professionally for travel guides, magazines and websites ever since.

Being a Freelance Travel Writer works perfectly alongside my role as the Founder of KOKOindia Luxury Travels. KOKOindia is a luxury travel consultancy for India specialising in stylish holidays, retreats and safaris. Each bespoke holiday is designed on the basis of personal and firsthand recommendations, and I travel extensively around India throughout the year for research purposes. Over twelve years of working in the travel industry have afforded me the opportunity to review hundreds of hotel, dining and destination experiences, of which some samples can be found here.

I have devised the full content for my company website, as well as for many other hotel and retreat websites. I continue to create ongoing reviews and humorous tales of life in India across various social media platforms, and you can find my latest blogs at

With a strong understanding of technical and creative writing skills, I am happy to receive commissions for features and articles on a wide range of topics. I also provide proofreading and content for websites and marketing campaigns.

I look forward to hearing from you - please feel free to contact me at
