Services

I use Microsoft Track Changes for my proofreading and editing and the Chicago Manual of Style as the basis for language rules. These can be changed if you have a preference.  

 

I can edit using either British or American English.

 

Prices are approximate, depending on the size and the amount of editing/correction required.

Large projects will require a deposit plus milestone payments.

Proofreading 

I will do a thorough surface check of your finished work, focusing on grammar, spelling, punctuation, indentation, spacing, fonts, etc. There is no rewriting/editing of material at this stage.

$30 per hour

Copyediting

I will make sure that your writing follows house style (if applicable) and language rules, including grammar, spelling and punctuation. Minor rewriting of sentences and/or paragraphs may be necessary.

$40 per hour

Line Editing

I will check through your material line by line and rewrite or delete text in order to make a sentence or paragraph clearer, while preserving your voice and writing style. This level of editing does not include the correction of spelling, grammar, or punctuation.
