Lesleigh Luttrell is a fanzine editor and writer.

Her first fanzine was Quark, co-published with her brother Chris Couch in the 1960s in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. While it was science fiction fandom zine, it also became well known for its coverage of the rock music scene of the era as well.

After Quark, Lesleigh began co-publishing Starling with her then-husband Hank Luttrell. Begun in the early 1960s, Starling was released for over a decade, with issue 3 appeared in 1964 and issue 28 in 1974. In 1975, Starling was nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Fanzine.

In 1972, Lesleigh Luttrell won the first Down Under Fan Fund (DUFF), a fund which helps send a North American fan to Australia and New Zealand (or vice versa in alternate years). Upon her return, she set about writing a fanzine about her trip, called Lesleigh's Adventures Down Under.
