Writing, Editing, Coaching


Rates: I usually charge by the project rather than by the hour, but I do offer hourly rates for coaching. In general, my rates fall within the range of those recommended by the Editorial Freelancers Association, but the specific rate depends on the type of project, the services offered, and the timeline. For this reason, I provide pricing information only after I’ve evaluated your project. Once I’ve understood your needs, I’ll quote a total project fee or an hourly rate, if appropriate. For new clients, I ask for a deposit of 30% to 50% of the estimated total project fee. I accept payment by cash, check, and Square.

How to Submit a Job: For all new clients, I offer a free consultation in person or via phone, Skype, or email along with a brief sample edit so that you can get a sense of my skills and style. If you’d like to consider working with me, contact me through this page or send me an email. If you’re ready to send a manuscript, attach it to your email and describe the type of assistance you think you need. We can then set up a time to talk, or if you prefer, I’ll go ahead and provide a sample edit, a detailed description of the services to be performed, a price estimate, and a timeline for completion. Once we agree on these terms, I’ll draft a contract and request a deposit.

My goal is to provide customized service at a fair price. Tell me about your project, and let’s see if we can work something out!
