Editing Services and Rates*
Choose the Level(s) of Editing to Suit Your Needs
Developmental Editing | $0.014/word
Is your story working?
I will focus on your story’s overall structure—plot, character, setting, etc.—as well as on clarity and story logic. I will provide comments throughout the manuscript and if needed, at the end of the document offering suggestions for improvement.
Copyediting | $0.01/word
Will your grammar, punctuation, or sentence structure pull readers out of your story?
I will edit for grammar, style, and word usage using The Chicago Manual of Style, Merriam-Webster's dictionary, and my own expertise.
Proofreading | Only available in combination with copyediting
Did you miss any typos or grammar issues?
I will edit for surface-level mechanics which may have been missed or introduced in copyediting.
