The cost for the proofreading or editing job I do for you depends on how much work is involved. I strive to keep my rates as low and fair as possible.
For an accurate quote, please send a confidential sample of the work you would like to be proofread or edited. I will give you a quote, and let you know how long it will take.
Why do I need to send a sample?
If I just charged a set rate, I’d have to set this rate fairly high. This means that if there’s not a lot wrong with your piece, you’d be charged much more for my time. When I look at a sample, I try to assess how long it will take me, and charge accordingly. This means no-one will be overcharged.
I’m a student, or work for a charity. Can I get a discount?
My rate for students, charities and community interest companies is lower than my standard rate. There’s a discount built into the quote I give you. Make sure you let me know if you’re a charity.
How can I pay?
My preferred method of payment is via PayPal, to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d rather pay by bank transfer, or in cash, let me know when you first ask for a quote. (It won’t affect your quote; it’s just useful to know.)
I ask for a 10% deposit for work over £100.
