Line Editing & Copy Editing – $0.015/word
I offer a combined service of line and copy editing.
Line editing is a content service where I focus on improving the flow and readability of your manuscript, improving the syntax, sentence structure, and awkward phrasing, and helping you find balance with showing and telling.
Copy editing is a grammar service where I focus on spelling, punctuation, tense, word usage, commonly confused words, overused words, capitalization, and hyphenation.

Proofreading – $0.01/word
Proofreading is a final step in the editing process—yay! It’s a final review of your manuscript to correct any glaring errors that remain after editing and revisions.

Editing & Proofreading – $0.02/word
This service includes one round of line and copy editing and one final proofread with author revisions after editing.
After editing, I’ll send your manuscript to you with tracked changes and comments so you can make revisions, ask questions, and answer any questions I had. When you return your manuscript to me, I’ll do the final proofread, making sure your style preferences are applied and are consistent.
