I offer three levels of editing: proofreading, copy editing, and line editing. Not sure which level your
writing needs? I can take a look at your document and let you know which would be the best choice.
I also offer free sample edits. A sample edit helps both of us see whether we’d work well together and lets me provide you with a more customized quote.
500 words for documents between 2,500 and 10,000 words; 1,000 words for documents over 10,000 words

Proofreading is the final stage in the editing process—one last check of your writing before publication. I’ll address the following:
- Capitalization, hyphenation, and punctuation errors

- Starts at $0.01/word and may increase based on the document
Standard Copy Editing
Copy editing is sentence-level work aimed at improving the technical aspects of your writing. I’ll address the following:

Line Editing/Heavy Copy Editing
Line editing, also called heavy copy editing, is sentence-level work aimed at improving the style, flow, and technical aspects of your writing.
When I perform line edits, I go beyond making changes in your document—I also leave comments and suggestions to help you improve the style of your writing. I’ll address everything included in Standard Copy Editing, PLUS:
- Phrasing and word choice
- Clarity and consistency
- Too much vs. not enough information
- Telling vs. showing
- Starts at $0.03/word and may increase based on the document
