Copyediting

I currently offer two tiers of copyediting services, both of which are priced at a per word rate.

Technical Copyediting

Technical Copyediting focuses on finding and correcting errors in grammar and mechanics. This can be as simple as finding and fixing typos, or as complex as correcting errors with structure and form, such as subject-verb agreement or comma splices. Technical copyediting is the “tidying up” of your manuscript. 

Rate: $0.025 per word

The rate per word will be charged based on the word count of the initial manuscript you send to me. As an example, a five-page paper would likely cost between $30-35, whereas a chapter of a book or thesis/dissertation (20 pages) would likely be more in the neighborhood of $125.

Content Copyediting

Content Copyediting is a more involved tier of copyediting. In addition to grammar and mechanics, content copyediting includes writing coaching on the substance of your document. This includes advice about the structure and content of individual paragraphs as well as the manuscript as a whole. Content copyediting covers topics such as organization, evidence/support, introductions and conclusions, or thesis/main idea work.

Rate: $0.035 per word

The rate per word will be charged based on the word count of the initial manuscript you send to me. As an example, a five-page paper would likely cost between $45-55, whereas a chapter of a book or thesis/dissertation (20 pages) would likely be more in the neighborhood of $175.
