Prices for copy-editing, proofreading or copywriting will vary according to the size of a project and the level of work required.
For a preliminary no-obligation quote, please send me either an email or a text message with a short description of the project (e.g. website copy, self-help guide, or pathology textbook), the word count, and your deadline. I will usually respond within 1–2 hours with an estimate and then you can decide whether to continue.
For a confirmed quote, please send me an email including the aforementioned details and also include a sample of the project.
Hourly or fixed fees (per project, per page, per word, or per thousand words) are agreed in advance. My rates are based on those recommended by the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and the National Union of Journalists.
N.B. Payment is due within 30 days of receipt of the invoice, either by BACS money transfer or by cheque. Should an invoice become overdue I reserve the right to claim statutory interest at 8% above the Bank of England base rate from day 31, in accordance with The Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998. Statutory interest will be calculated using the Better Payment Practice Campaign calculator.
