The cost for your project will depend on your document’s length and complexity, the type of service you need (proofreading, copyediting, or substantive editing), and your preferred turnaround time.

Contract types

I accept both fixed-price and hourly contracts. Many of my new clients prefer flat-fee contracts. However, in some cases—especially for long-term collaborations or multiple revisions of the same document—an hourly contract can help you keep costs low. That’s because the second revision of a document takes much less time to complete than the first revision.

Please contact me to discuss which type of contract is better for your particular project.
