Package options coming soon! 

 

 

Fact checking

$35/hour

Research your document to ensure there are no glaring errors before publication. Fact checking will ensure your content is reliable and accurate every time, which is important in the world of fake news. 

Proofreading

$0.02/word or $35/hour

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

Copyediting

$0.025-0.035/word or $40/hour

Copyediting services are a little more in-depth. This service covers basic editing for spelling, punctuation, and grammar plus style and consistency. This includes making sure names, locations, dates, and other style formats are accurate. 

Line editing

$45/hour

Edit for grammar, punctuation, spelling as well as flow, fiction, syntax, readability and awkward phrasing. Minor rewriting and restructuring are also included in this option, and feedback on issues that may affect your book or document’s quality comes along with every page. 

Developmental editing

$55/hour

Rigorous editing in all areas as well as rewriting, ghostwriting, or restructuring to help fix serious issues. With this service, you receive everything the previous editing services offer — only with much more specialized care and assistance.

Writing services

Prices are value-based and start around 8 cents per word. As such, prices may vary due to the project itself, the amount of time to completion, and the extent of research necessary.

 

Ghost Writing

Starting at $0.05/word

I write it, you put your name on it. Articles starting at $25 for 500 words, depending on length and project. Prices for eBook ghostwriting start higher, at $0.30/word (see below). 

Newspaper articles

Starting at $0.08/word.

Newspaper writing includes creating a well-informed article on the desired topic, 2 interviews, and necessary research. Please note that layout is an additional cost. 

(Kansas City Community Newspapers begin at $60 per article.)

Magazine features 

Starting at $250/article.

Good magazine features focus on engaging issues while informing and persuading readers. They’re meant to influence public opinion, promote critical thinking, and, most importantly, call for action. Articles up to 2,000 words begin at $250.

Content/Blog writing

$60 per article

With technological advances, traditional print newspapers are a thing of the past. Instead, web-based content is designed to streamline information to the masses. Pieces up to 500 words start at $60. 

Blogs and articles

$60 per blog

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. These blogs sometimes take on listicle forms (list-based articles or Top 10 lists) and can be used to deliver fun, engaging content to keep your readers entertained. Blogs up to 500 words begin at $60.

eBooks (Ghostwriting)

Starting at $0.30/word or $50/hour

Do you want to self-publish, but you just can’t seem to get the words down right? Or do you need a writer to comb through your story and offer suggestions or put your words into print?

Luckily, I have experience doing both! Prices vary based on the project.

Book reviews

$40 per review (base price), up to 500 words.


Are you a writer too?

Helping my fellow writers is one of my favorite parts about the 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. 

But I also offer mentoring services. Connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Instagram. I’d love to hear from you! 🙂
