Professional Editing for Business, Literary, and Academic Works


Three out of four people (74%) take note of the quality of spelling or grammar on a company website, and 61% wouldn’t trust a company with errors to provide good service (Global Lingo survey, 2013).

Editing Services

Many organizations have their own style guides, and I can adapt to any set of guidelines. I have experience with many official style guides, including (but not limited to) the Chicago Manual of Style, Associated Press, and APA or MLA citation.

Editing Rates

The rates below are guidelines based on industry standards. They can vary depending on the type of project, time frame, level of editing, and other details. After I receive information on your project, I will send you a detailed contract and rate estimate, with 50% of the total fee required as a deposit. If it is a longer project, I will send each section back as it is completed for your approval. You will always be involved in your work's progression.

I also offer a nonprofit rate for tax-exempt organizations and an academic rate which can apply to theses, application essays, degree projects, etc.

Basic Copyediting

$28 per hour or $5 per page

Substantive Editing

$33 per hour or $7 per page

Writing Projects

$50 per hour (approx. 2 pages) or $25 per page

For rush projects (determined by time frame and type of content), add 50% to above rates.

Accounts can be set up for multiple, recurring, or long-term projects for either individuals or organizations. A fee discount will be applied to these accounts, based upon the volume and frequency of the required services.
