I am a professional copy writer and editor with 14 years of industry experience able to polish your work. I have experience in:
social media writing
website content editing
I offer the following services:
Proofreading is looking for SPAG errors (spelling, punctuation, and grammar). This is usually reserved for when a story or article is nearly ready for publication.
Copy editing includes finding and correcting SPAG errors, but also checking for jargon, wordiness, awkward transitions, a character who changes the spelling of her name from chapter three to chapter seven, and making sure that the article fits the preferred style of the intended publication.
What’s the difference? See more about the different functions of both here.
Basic copy editing: $25 an hour, at an estimated pace of 5-10 manuscript pages per hour.
Proofreading: $20, at an estimated pace of 10-15 manuscript pages per hour.
According to the Editorial Freelancers Association, the industry standard for a manuscript page is a firm 250 words.
These prices are lower than recommended industry rates and could rise in the future.
