Hey, Hi, Hello.
Lisa Marie Corso is a writer and editor. And yes, her parents named her after Elvis' spawn. It could have been worse, right? At least her name isn't Apple.
Once in primary school a tub of yoghurt exploded in her school bag, leaving a trail of dairy devastation everywhere. All of her possessions were drenched in Yoplait, including her prized possession: The Oxford dictionary. Each page curled up on its edges, the same way an echidna shows its spikes when a predator is near. The dictionary was sour smelling and ready to be turfed.
In life you are presented with options and on this fateful day an eight-year-old decided this book was worth saving. After all this was the book that taught her there were 101 ways to say something was nice without saying something 'nice'.
When you're eight anything is possible, and so using her mother's hairdryer, Lisa Marie blow-dried each page back to its former glory. It ended up being the perm of the century.
So the short version is:
Lisa Marie Corso really likes words. She can write some for you.
Her editorial writing has appeared in Australian Gourmet Traveller, Real Living, The National Gallery of Victoria's NGV Magazine, The Design Files, Broadsheet, Lunch Lady, The Planthunter, Yen and Four&Sons to name a few and many LiveJournal entries she wrote as a teenager and hopes never see the light of day again.
She's also created commercial copy and content for Zoe Foster Blake's popular app Break-Up Boss, as well as content and copywriting services for Country Road, Gorman, Incu, 80 Collins and Darling Square. She's also worked as a book researcher and writer for Australian and UK-based publishing house, Hardie Grant.
Lisa Marie worked as a television screenwriter at laugh-til-you-cry production company Gristmill, who are responsible for some of Australia's best comedies including Upper Middle Bogan, The Librarians, Very Small Business and Little Lunch. She was a staff writer on their upcoming children's comedy The InBESTigators slated for release in 2019.
Available for editorial, editing and copywriting services.
She can also ghost write family birthday cards for you. Just sayin'.
