Companies & Not-for-profit organizations
"Working with Leah has been a fantastic experience. In her writing and PR work with us she took care to understand our company and the message that we wanted to portray. She has a great attention to detail and works well with little direction. I would definitely recommend her."
"Leah Payne worked with me as a Volunteer for our local Community Literacy Committee doing Social Media promotions. As a volunteer, she was easy to work with, dedicated, and followed through on what she said she would do. As social media professional and writer, it was apparent that Leah not only knew her stuff, but was happy to share her expertise and help others learn and build capacity.
"When I began my undergraduate degree, I had no experience with academic writing. I didn’t know where to begin, until Leah stepped in. Leah taught me how to research, write, and edit my academic papers, increasing my essay marks by a full letter grade. My high grades initiated by her wealth of knowledge inspired me to pursue a Master’s of Arts years later. Without Leah’s coaching I simply would not have my MA today!"
I can honestly say that Leah is a writing and editing miracle worker! Before enlisting her services, my speeches lacked clarity and organization. Also, I struggled with writing in an engaging way for diverse audiences. After enlisting Leah's help, all of this has changed. With her constructive feedback, eye for detail, and expert guidance, my speech writing has improved tenfold. She has taught me how to write concisely, while setting an upbeat tone that is also topical and informative. I can't thank Leah enough.
"It was an immense pleasure not only to work with Leah Payne, but also to get to know her. As colleagues at Alive Publishing Group, Leah and I participated in many projects for both print and online products of the alive and Teldon brands. Leah continues to be integral to our products as a freelance contributor.
"As a senior editor at alive magazine, it has been my pleasure to edit Leah Payne’s freelance articles on a variety of topics from fracking to toxins in beauty products. Her writing is always professional, polished, and delivered on time. Leah is also a thorough, thoughtful editor who excels at all types of editing, including substantive, stylistic, and proofreading. Her writing and editing skills make her a well-rounded communications professional whom I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend."
"Leah helped me with my resume: she helped me use the right vocabulary, the right fonts, and the style of the resume. I was so stuck and had no idea how to write a good resume—not one for the job I was applying for. Leah was a life saver … because of the resume she helped me with, I ended up with an interview and I got the job. Thank you so much Leah for taking time to help me."
