Frequently asked questions

How much will it cost?

Each project is unique. The time required to edit a document can vary depending on the type and level of edit needed. Before giving a quote, we’ll discuss your project and needs. I’ll consider the level of editing, word count, subject matter, and your deadline.

I offer three types of tiered packages, Academic, Book, and Mini Edit, as well as standalone pricing:

Formatting$2.25 per source
Improves reference list’s overall layout by ensuring style guide requirements are met, missing details are added to in-text citations (based on reference list), and in-text citations are checked against reference list.

ProofreadingStarting at $0.023 (2.3 cents) per word
Word-level edit that checks for typos as well as spelling, grammar, typos, and usage errors (done as a final step to catch any lingering typos or format glitches).

CopyeditingStarting at $0.026 (2.6 cents) per word
Sentence-level edit that checks for grammar and punctuation, spelling, clarity, syntax, language usage, awkward sentence construction, paragraphing, and wordiness. 

Content EditingStarting at $0.04 (4 cents) per word
Sentence/paragraph-level edit that

  • looks at your piece as a whole and assess what works, what doesn’t, and why;

  • looks at structure, organization of information, logic and flow of arguments, and ideas;

  • assesses the organization, content, style and tone, language, meaning, coherence, and flow of the piece;

  • reorganizes, adds, or deletes content as needed; and

  • ensures the material is suitable for the intended audience.

What is a sample edit?

No two editors will edit a document the same way. They work at different speeds, depending on the level of editing and the project specifications involved. This is why a sample edit helps to ensure the quote adequately reflects your project and needs. Through it, you can judge the quality of my work and determine if I’m the right fit for you, and I can determine the level of edit and speed needed.

After completing the sample edit, I then base my estimate on the editing speed divided into the document's total page count to arrive at the total number of editing hours. To receive a free sample edit, please fill out the form above or send an email.
