Pricing

Editing services

Prices starting at $35 per hour.

 

Proofreading

$35/hour

Perfect when you just need a quick double-check. Proofreading services take place after the document has been fully edited and formatted, ensuring there are no errors. This service will review basic spelling, punctuation, and grammar.

 

Copyediting

$40/hour

Copyediting services, on the other hand, are a little more in-depth. It will cover spelling, punctuation, grammar, syntax, clarity, and style consistency. This includes making sure names, locations, dates, and other style formats are always displayed the same way. May also include some very slight rewriting, as necessary. 

 

Developmental editing

$50/hour

With content editing, you can expect full service and a premium, shiny final draft. Service includes checking for grammar, word choice, clarity, and style plus re-writing small sections of content and ensuring the article is easy to understand and effectively organized. In other words, it will be clear and concise. Formatting is extra.

Whether your goal is to deliver hot news-worthy topics or form strong customer relationships, entertainment is key. The truth is, people love fun posts.

Are you a writer too?

Helping my fellow writers is one of my favorite parts of freelance life.

Even though we work alone, we’re never really alone. There’s an entire community of writers out there to assist your writing journey, no matter how experienced you are, which is why I spend my down time helping my fellow writers.

From editing blogs and creative fiction to writing ‘how to’ articles on freelancing, writing, and remaining motivated and productive, I write about my life journey, and the things I learn along the way, to share with you. 

Connect on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. I’d love to hear from you! 🙂
