What Do I Charge?
My rates vary depending on the following factors:
- service provided (copy editing? proofreading? research?)
- length of work
- complexity of work (Is it straight text? Or are there tables, graphs, references?)
- degree of effort required (Are there many mistakes? Does the writing style make the text easy to interpret?)
- tightness of deadline (I add a 25% surcharge for a rush project)
Because so many variables must be considered, it is impossible for me to give a standard rate. I will need to speak to you and see a representative sample of the work. Contact me for a free estimate. To obtain a ballpark estimate, you can use Adrienne Montgomerie's helpful Instant Estimate calculator.
I generally charge by the hour, but if I can assess the complete work in advance, I may be able to offer a flat project quote.
Contact me to discuss the discounts I offer to non-profit organizations and small literary publishers.
