Editing Rates

The final project cost is based on a per word count (with a minimum of $25 per project). You’ll be happy to find my rates are at the low end of industry standards.

Proofreading: $0.015 per word

Copyediting: $0.025 per word

Content editing: $0.04 per word

Fact checking: $40 per hour

Formatting footnotes/endnotes/bibliographies: $40 per hour

In order to deliver the best final product for manuscripts, I recommend proofreading in addition to copyediting or content editing. For clients choosing more than one service for a project, I give a 10% discount.

For all services, I’ll do a no-cost, no-obligation sample edit of several pages in order to determine the level of editing required. If you agree with my evaluation and editing style and choose to proceed, I’ll provide a contract for the project, which will include a time frame for completion. I require a 50% down payment before editing begins, with the balance due at the completion of the project.

Payments can be made through Square, PayPal, or Stripe or by mailing a check.
