Christina Zissis Senior Editor

Christina Zissis is the Australian War Memorial's Senior Editor, based in the Military History Section.

Having worked briefly at a publishing house in London, Christina began her editing career at the Commonwealth Office of Parliamentary Counsel in Canberra, where she was later put in charge of the editorial team. After this she spent some time as a freelance writer, editor, and world-traveller before joining the Hansard team at Parliament House in 2011, where she learned the difference between editing speech and editing the written word. In 2013 she joined the Memorial, and ever since has been working on a full range of material, from books and exhibition catalogues to brochures, gallery labels, exhibition text, and the annual report. She became senior editor in 2015.
