Dr Lisa Lines is an accomplished editor, educator, author, academic and historian. Prior to her tenure as a Lecturer in Military History at UNSW Canberra (at the Australian Defence Force Academy), Dr Lines lectured at all three major South Australian universities. She has held many editorial and academic positions at multiple institutions, giving her a reputation as the ‘go-to’ authority in the academic editing community.

Dr Lines is Director and Head Editor of Capstone Editing, Australia’s leading specialist editing company, an Accredited Editor with the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd) and an active member of the Canberra Society of Editors. As a published author and historian, Dr Lines understands the pressure to publish that is placed on academics, particularly women and early-career academics. As an experienced educator, Dr Lines is acutely aware of the challenges faced by postgraduate students, particularly students who have English as a second language.

This rare combination of teaching, editing, academic and research abilities has allowed Dr Lines to recognise the weaknesses in current industry and tertiary educational offerings. Addressing these challenges with her characteristic enthusiasm and relatable approach, Dr Lines has created something truly unique: an accessible, affordable online training college, equipped to meet the challenges of the modern education system.

Dr Lines has taught and mentored thousands of students throughout her academic and editing career. It is this wealth of experience and steadfast dedication to the academia, research and professional advancement that Dr Lines brings to every unit, module and course.
