Christin Perry - Editor

Ashburn, VA, United States

Eagle-eyed editor experienced in line editing, copy editing and proofreading. Specialize in providing timely, effective feedback to authors.

Overview

I am a dedicated and meticulous Freelance Copy Editor with an excellent record of client satisfaction. I am extremely knowledgeable of Chicago Manual of Style standards. I am highly deadline-oriented, and able to handle multiple projects simultaneously with accuracy and efficiency. I absolutely love what I do, and I can't believe I am lucky enough to read as part of my career! I have experience in line editing, copy editing, developmental editing, ghost editing, and proofreading. My favorite part about being an editor (aside from reading!) is providing authors with detailed, effective feedback that allows them to take their manuscripts to new levels.
