Everything you ever wanted to know about freelance proofreader and editor, Christine Gordon Manley
With her lifelong love for playing with words, it surprised no one that Christine would study English at university. After earning her English degree at UPEI in 2002, Christine flew across the Atlantic where she took her Master of Arts in Women’s History at Royal Holloway, University of London.
After her gig as a grad student was up, Christine gained “real world” experience by working in both academic and publishing environments. She also took some communications and editing courses to round out her creds. In addition to wearing her Manley Mann hat, Christine teaches professional writing and grammar to adult learners.
Christine edits all types of writing including search engine optimized website content, blog posts, press releases, print ads, manuscripts, emails, academic papers, dissertations, and technical documents.
Not only can she spot a grammatical error from 100 paces, but Christine can also work magic on a large document that needs some help with structure and organization.
Christine polishes each piece she edits to a sparkling shine, while keeping the author’s voice in tact.
