I have provided typical rates for various levels of editing in the table below. Please email me with the first few pages of your document at KLsciencewriting@gmail.com to obtain a free quote. That way I can determine which level of edit is the most appropriate and provide an estimated turnaround time.
Typical pages per hour
|Proofreading||9–13 ms pgs/hr||$35/hr|
|Basic copy editing||5-10 ms pgs/hr||$50/hr|
|Heavy copy editing||2-5 ms pgs/hr||$60/hr|
|Substantive or stylistic editing||1-6 ms pgs/hr||$70-100/hr|
All writing work and other forms of editing and consulting are quoted on a case by case basis, however, typical costs are $50 – $100 per hour, which works out to approximately $0.50 – $1.00 per word.
I’m happy to provide a written quote for your project, once the full scope of work has been determined. Write to me at KLsciencewriting@gmail.com for more information!
