I opened Streamline Publishing four months ago, just as 2021 was coming to a close. As a long-time freelancer working from home, I decided it was time to shine a light on my editing and publishing skills by opening my store in the beautiful and charming Eltham. 

Inspired to put publishing in the reach of anybody who needed it, naming my business came easily to me. People from all walks of life appreciate a streamlined approach to any product they buy or service they use, and so with my wonderful customers in mind, Streamline Publishing was born!  

The decision to open my business in town has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I love connecting with fellow locals and visitors to town, and giving everybody the opportunity to publish the work they love and are rightfully proud of. Thanks to the wonderful help and interest I’ve received from artists such as Pauline Cross and Lynne Muir, and the Eltham Bookshop proprietors Meera and Navin Govil, I’ve cultivated personal and professional relationships that have helped bring Streamline Publishing to life. 

As a person who loves making a plan and following it, once I started on my public outreach for my editing and publishing services, I haven’t looked back once. While it hasn’t always been easy to get people in the door, my passion for what I do has never wavered once. My customers are delightful and bring a smile to my face each and every day with their curiosity and sincere natures, reminding me why I wanted to open my business in the first place. 

Having this chance to bring genuine new opportunities and life to art and publishing in Eltham has been one of the highlights of my life. Eltham contains fascinating and content people, persuasive yet tamed bushland, and a smattering of unique, interesting, and quality businesses wherever you look, and I couldn’t be more proud to be one of them.
