Scope of services
Here's what you'll get:
Fast service. Depending on the time of year (no projects accepted during March and April) and project size, in many cases I can have your manuscript back to you in a day or two.
Custom service to fit your needs. You can specify what kind of feedback you want: ranging from fast and efficient proofreading, to corrections in basic grammar and sentence structure, all the way to extensive reworking and rewriting of your text. In every case I aim for clarity, while maintaining the integrity of your original expression and unique writing voice.
Check out my affordable rates. Because I work independently, I can offer you professional quality at lower cost. You can choose from our standard range of services, or you can request a custom rate tailored more precisely to your writing project.
If your writing is fairly polished but needs a final check for simple errors of spelling, capitalization, punctuation and grammar, I can offer you low rates and fast service. With larger manuscripts you may qualify for additional discounts.
Your cost: $3.60 per page*; $12 per 1000 words* plus 13%HST
Basic Copy Editing
Your writing will benefit from changes to unclear wording, awkward sentence construction, or unnecessary repetition. All changes are highlighted for your review. In areas needing further clarity, I'll insert a comment with a question or suggestion for you to take further action.
Your cost: $6.00 per page*; $20 per 1000 words*; plus 13% HST
Moderate to Extensive Rewriting
If you need a more active editorial role in rewriting and reworking your text, just choose the advanced editing option. Poor sentence construction is cleaned up, and larger blocks of text are reorganized where necessary or requested. As with the basic option, all changes and suggestions are highlighted for your review.
Your cost: $16.50 per page*; $55 per 1000 words*; plus 13% HST
