Editing Rates

The final project cost is based on a per word count (with a minimum of $25 per project).

Proofreading: 1.5 cents per word in Word; 1.8 cents per word for a PDF

Copyediting: 2.5 to 3.5 cents per word (light to heavy)

Structural editing: 4 to 5 cents per word (light to heavy)

Formatting footnotes/endnotes/bibliographies: $45 per hour

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

For all services, I’ll do a no-cost, no-obligation sample edit of several paragraphs 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.
