Chuckie Manio

Copy Editor, Ghostwriter, Writer

I read and write obsessively. Make my mental disorder work for you.

Studied Philosophy as an undergraduate. Trained mainly in the analytic philosophy canon, such as J.L. Austin and Quine. Personally supplemented education on Kant, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Marx, and Foucault. Chief area of expertise: meta-ethics.

Currently taking up my M.A. in Philosophy. Still working on meta-ethics. Taking time off to focus on paying my student debts while finishing my thesis. Expanded my field of study to postmodernism and critical theory, particularly Lyotard, Derrida, Habermas and Marcuse.

I most enjoy literature in my free time, writing stories and essays. Was part of two national writing workshops, including the first English writing workshop in Asia (the SUNWS, 2015).

Have worked in a number of academic consulting companies, mostly as a ghostwriter for school requirements, with projects ranging from short essays for undergraduates to entire Ph.D dissertations in diverse areas, e.g. business leadership, depression, dark tourism, special education. Specialized in writing 30-40 page literature reviews, where a vast amount of scholarly literature is synthesized into a coherent narrative of an entire subject and its most pertinent issues for scholars. Expert-level understanding of phenomenological and case study research methodologies, among others.

Full mastery of APA, MLA, and Turabian citation styles. Familiar with the Harvard style.

Case Study
ManioWritingSamples.pdf

Samples of my academic writing. First one is under my name for my thesis. Second and third samples are ghostwritten for clients from my previous company. I don't have samples yet for shorter "content writing," but I'm confident that, given the chance, I can knock it out of the park. Willing to take on a lower rate to prove my worth to employers who are going to take a chance on me.
