Lorese Vera

I am a professional Writer Editor and Educator well known in my hometown in Canberra, the Capital City of Australia. I am available for any copy writing and editing including academic writing. I am a published writer working on my verse novel and collection of short stories. Next year I begin my PhD in English and Creative Writing. I am also available as a tutor for your own creative writing. Please note that my many qualifications cost me to acquire and have value. I work for a minimum of $5 per 600 words of simple rewriting. If you expect me to take the time to research for your work it will cost more. If hired by you I will be responsible to complete the task within the stipulated time frame and with utmost confidence. Outsource me for your project and I promise to bring in the best output.
