The rates below are my standard rates. Hourly rates are standard, but I am willing to negotiate per job, per page, and per word rates with customers on a case-by-case basis.
The level of need for a job (proofreading vs. copyediting) can only be determined after I’ve seen a sample.
Proofreading: The standard rate is $25/hour, with a $50 minimum job. Proofreading assumes the text is in near-complete form and needs polish only.
Copyediting: The standard rate is $35/hour, with a $70 minimum job. Copyediting assumes the text is still a work in progress, and will need more serious attention.
Business Document Creation: For the creation of forms, business correspondence, brochure text, etc. The standard $35/hour rate also applies.
Developmental Editing: Because this is dependent on the length and complexity of the project, the project fee (or hourly rate) varies and needs to be fixed after meeting with the customer and reviewing the project.
Introductory Job Offer: First-time clients may request an introductory job of up to 2500 words (usually about 4-5 typed pages) of proofreading or copyediting, or one simple form (single page), for a flat fee of $25.
