Detailed Edit or Comprehensive Edit
Because each piece of writing is unique and is not suitable for a one-size-fits-all pricing scheme, I offer personalized quotes. Rates will vary according to the length of the project, the scope of the edit, and the turnaround time. In order for me to provide you with an accurate estimate, I need to see a representative sample of your writing and know the approximate word count of the work as a whole. Based on this criteria, I will estimate a flat fee. If you have a tighter budget, we can discuss how the edit can be tailored to fit it. My rates are in line with industry standards, as reflected in this chart provided by the Editorial Freelancer’s Association (in US dollars): https://www.the-efa.org/rates/

Once the scope, cost, and time frame have been established, an agreement outlining all the particulars is put in place. Larger editing projects require 50% of the fee upon booking a slot in my schedule, and the balance is due before I return the preliminary edits to you. Full payment is due at the outset for smaller editing projects.
Projects should be submitted as a Word file (DOC or DOCX) and should include a detailed synopsis or outline. Editing work is done electronically using Word's "Track Changes" and "Comments" editing functions. This allows you to review and approve all editing suggestions and to ask questions. I will send you a document that explains the editing process along with a written tutorial on working with Word's editing features.
I offer a small discount when you pay through Interac e-transfer, but I will also accept payment through PayPal.
