Pricing Info

Each job will be priced individually. I usually work on an hourly basis. An estimation of the number of hours a job will take will be discussed with the client at the beginning of the process once the level of intervention required has been assesed through a free sample edit of the material.

The fees charged for proofreading will be calculated using suggested minimum rates for freelancers outlined by the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
