Because every project is different, my rates cover a wide range and fall roughly midpack among professional editors and writers.
Fees and schedule are negotiated before work begins, based on my review of a sample (and a short test edit if appropriate), or a thorough description of your project.
I cost out jobs according to systems that work best for each type of task, and can adapt them to per-word, per-page, per-hour, or per-project to meet your parameters. For independent clients I provide a contract spelling out all terms and understandings. If your organization requires a specific contract form for vendors, we’ll work with that.
Payment is due upon delivery of the completed project except for book manuscripts, which require a deposit. Midpoint invoicing may also apply to large projects, and balance is due upon completion. Variations are negotiable, and discounts are available for certain services. Shipping fees apply for hardcopy work.
All amounts in U.S. dollars. Payment accepted by check, direct deposit, or PayPal.
