Services and Rates
What Is Proofreading?
Proofreading is where I give your clean, FINAL copy that last "once over" to make sure punctuation, capitalization, and grammar are all perfect. It is not as involved as editing work, so the rates reflect that distinction. I will verify consistent fonts, spacing, and paragraph formatting, double-check proper names and places, and make sure you don't have any misused words. I will not change any of your content.
What Is Copy Editing?
Sometimes your manuscript, letter, etc., need a tiny bit more work than a standard proofreader would typically do. This is where copy editing comes in. I will check for grammar, usage, consistency, etc., but I may make minor changes to the text to make your message clear.
If I'm proofreading or editing your website, this service will include:
Rates start at $0.012 per word for proofreading and $0.018 per word for copy editing, assuming a standard 3-5 day turnaround for less than 10k words. Website review will add a nominal fee per page, depending on how large the site is.
If you need something sooner than the standard turnaround, please let me know, and I'll send you a quote with expedited or rush/weekend rates.
Do you prefer a month-to-month contract? We can do that!

*I reserve the right to renegotiate the rate if the project as represented at time of quote is not the true scope of work. All rates stated in "business days" which is M-F. Rates are subject to change but are current as of May 2018.
Not really looking for a proofreader or editor? I do other things, too!
From letter templates to blog posts to social media copy and beyond, let me help you find just the right words to express what you want to convey. You can see my blog at positively b.e.e. if you want to see one style of my writing: positivity blogging.
I can assess your manuscript, essay, or other writing and give you feedback on how you can make it even better. I point out questions the reader may have and give feedback on writing strengths and weaknesses, but in a way that isn't scary. I'm your writing cheerleader!
Resumes & Cover Letters
I'm a whiz at reviewing a resume and cover letter and letting you know how you're coming across and where the holes are, then help you tighten up the language to make it sing!
I can type really, really fast! Are you an author who needs notes transcribed? Looking to revise your CV and all you can find is an old PDF? Are you a journalist or student conducting recorded interviews and need those in print? I've got your back!
Contact me and let's talk about how I can help you! I am happy to give you a custom quote for whatever your project may be.
