Editing and Proofreading Services

Welcome to Bronwyn Harris Copy Editing! The breadth of my teaching, editing, and writing experience sets me apart from others in this field.

As an educator, I have experience not only in writing, proofreading, and editing, but also in addressing the underlying issues that make up a piece of writing, including tone, mechanics, and content.  In addition, my passion for the field has led me to learn more and constantly seek to perfect my skills.
