Depending on the type of work you require, I can work either for an agreed set fee or at an hourly rate. Different jobs require different skills – a structural edit and copyedit of a highly technical document is different from proofreading a blog post – and I structure my pricing accordingly. The length and complexity of your document, along with the scope of editorial work you require, will determine my quote.
Drop me a line and we can discuss what you need.

The briefing process
The more thorough the brief you can supply, the better. If you have a sample chapter or two that I can review at the outset, this should provide me with a good indication of how long the job will take, and will allow me to quote accurately.
If you are unsure about what to include in an editorial brief, the Institute of Professional Editors has some excellent information on how to brief an editor.
The quoting process
Once you have supplied your brief, I will estimate the work required and provide you with a quote that will be as accurate as I can make it. Please ensure that you provide me with your timeframe for delivery of services, as this may affect the quote. If you supply me with a sample chapter of your work, I will provide a free sample edit to give you an indication of what to expect from the edit.
