FAQ: What do you charge?

My price depends on a number of factors …

For independent children’s authors I have two different rates.

  1. Basic proofreading of typos, and errors of grammar and consistency: £20 per 1,000 words. For stories over 1,000 words, my price is £20 per hour. 
  2. Proof-editing: on top of basic proofreading for errors, I will give suggestions for improvements. I also offer self-publishing advice for independent authors.  From £30 per project.

For businesses and publishers: my price starts from £20 per hour, but is negotiable depending on budget.

Students please ask.  As a former teacher, I have years of experience of marking assessments, assignments, theses and dissertations. Your needs might be different to the needs of another student.

Price is negotiable depending on the level of intervention needed. Every project is different. I will give you an individual quote for your particular project.

The suggested minimum freelance rate as advised by the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) is £25 per hour.

Please note: If you want a speedy turnaround (within 24 hours) or need my services over a weekend, my  price will be higher.
