Copyediting Project

Wendy and her colleagues were so great to work with! This was my first experience with Catchafire and the process was very smooth. I learned a lot while working on this project with Kamehameha Schools and I appreciate the opportunity to have a small role in the overall copy editing process. Thank you KS and Catchafire!
