Rates

I believe that all works can benefit from the careful eye of a copyeditor, so I’ve set my prices accordingly.

  • For basic proofreading, $0.007/word or $30/hour, as appropriate.
  • For a more detailed project or more intensive edit, please contact me to discuss a custom price. I’d love to hear from you!

All payments will be processed via PayPal or Dwolla.
