Current Rates for Freelance Editing and Proofreading Services
Below are my current typical rates for proofreading and editing.
I will ask you to email me a sample of a few pages. I will give you an example of how I will comment on your text, and a rate quote. If your document is typical of what I usually get, then I will use the rates below.
- proofreading – just catch errors ($3/pg double-spaced)
- copyediting – suggest word choice changes, sentence reordering ($3/pg double-spaced)
- developmental and structural editing – Review manuscripts for organization, argument focus, setting up the pitch, adapting to audience. Also consultations to help authors figure out what they are trying to do. ($5-$10/pg double-spaced, depending on needs)
- personal statement editing and coaching ($20 per 1 review and consultation)
