Liana Smith Bautista


Liana Smith Bautista was an editor with Female Network from December 2010 until July 2012. She takes pride in being one of the people who have helped to shape the site's voice and content. She has been a creative writer since childhood, and she pursued this interest through high school, college, and beyond.

Her career path has been focused on editing, with the exception of a two-year segue into restaurant management--she had been a freelance writer and copy editor, a manuscript copy editor for a US-based publishing company with a local arm, and a technical content editor for a multinational internet security company prior to taking on the challenge of editing for Female Network.

Although she now helps with the marketing and reservations for her family's beach resort in Moalboal, Cebu, she continues to pursue her interest in writing and editing. She is a freelance editor and writer for FN and contributes to other Summit publications like Men's Health Philippines, Cosmopolitan Philippines, and Good Housekeeping Philippines. She also serves as a municipal liaison for the Philippine region in the National Novel Writing Month challenge, or NaNoWriMo.
