Writing / Editing Services

Proofreading Services

If you have a document that's already been written, edited, reworked, and written again, and it just needs that final look-through by a professional pair of eyes to ensure you really have crossed all your t's, dotted your i's, and no period is out of place--that's where my proofreading services come in. I read through to make sure spelling, grammar, and formatting are correct; and that the writing is clear and comprehensive, and accomplishes its purpose.

My standard rate for proofreading is

$5 CAD per page (which generally works out to about 2¢ per word).

Copy Editing Services

This goes beyond checking for spelling and grammar mistakes, with the intention to improve, rather than simply correct. Copy editing also includes a focus on the flow of the document, consistency of language and style, and if necessary,

some reorganization of content or restructuring of text.

My standard rate for copy editing is

$7.50 CAD per page, however, if the document requires a heavy amount of copy editing, this may increase by $1-2.

A rate increase would not be applied without prior discussion. 

Content Editing Services

This is the most extensive editing service I offer. It includes everything mentioned in copy editing, but would also involve possible section or paragraph rewrites, the addition of necessary content that was originally omitted, and other variations of content creation. If you have a first draft of a document that doesn't live up to what you'd envisioned, and you need help to get it there, this service is for you.

My standard rate for content editing is $10 CAD per page, however, depending on the length of the document (upon mutual agreement), an hourly rate might be charged instead.
