Loretta Leslie - Editor

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

LorLes Lifestyles offers a warts and all approach to editing. I will give it to you straight - the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Overview

Whether it is a creative endeavour or business documentation, the conveying of a thought in clear, well-rounded English is the principle which underpins my approach. I greatly enjoy helping the author optimise their words and find their voice.

Attention to detail, a flair for writing, and honest, thoughtful, constructive feedback are my strengths. Words are powerful, and choosing the right ones is an art.

I can take the author from inception through to proofreading. I find the best work is done through mentoring where the exploration of ideas is possible.

I bring my creative side to literature and a wealth of experience to business documentation. Both are professionally undertaken.

With an extensive background in business, I have the skills to write business documentation: policy and procedure; strategic plans; annual reports.
