I offer an affordable fee.

My standard rate for editing is $50 per hour, but that probably won’t be very meaningful to you, as you may have no idea how many hours it would take me to edit your  work. And nor would I until I had a look at some of it. That is why I always follow this simple way of determining the fee:

  • Ask you for a short sample of your work (about 1,000 words or 4 double-spaced pages) so that I can assess how much editing it might need and how long it would take me to accomplish that
  • Figure out a flat fee and propose that to you as my fee for editing your entire work

That fee would not be an estimate, but a guaranteed final fee, with no surprises or extra charges at the end.

The fee also depends on the kind(s) of editing you want. I think you would find that the sample edit on which I base my assessment would benefit you as much as it would me. It can help you decide if I would do the kind of work you expect or if I am the kind of editor you might want to work with. If it turns out that we are agreeable on both sides, then we can discuss further how I could help you with your entire text. If you decide no, then that’s OK: there’s no charge for the assessment of the sample.

I accept payment by either of two well-known and trusted online methods, Interac e-Transfer and PayPal.

No payment is due until I have submitted the edited work to you.
