If you are an independent academic author and you would like advice on how to improve your writing but you feel confident in undertaking most of the legwork yourself, I can copy-edit a section or chapter of your manuscript. In addition to copy-editing a section of your manuscript, I provide written feedback on particular areas of your writing that you might need to focus on. I charge advisory copy-edits on a per word basis.
For a full copy-edit, I can work to a fee structure that suits your needs. Most commonly, I charge a fee per word, but other possible fee structures include:
- a fee per hour
- a fee per 1,000 words
- a fixed fee.
My hourly rates are guided by the minimum rates recommended by the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.
I use the institute’s model terms & conditions.
For the sake of clarity, I am a sole trader, not a limited company or partnership.
Please contact me to discuss your project.
