Before we start any project, we will email you an estimate after discussing the details with you. If you have specific questions about the information provided below, please contact us.
Writing is charged on a per hour or per project basis. We can discuss this when we talk about the scope of the project.
Line editing and copy editing are charged at an hourly rate of $40, with a $20 (30-minute) minimum. We generally edit between 3,000 and 6,000 words per hour, depending on the extent of the revisions needed. If you want an estimate for your specific project, please submit a 500- to 1,000-word sample of the work to be edited. We will look at that and tell you roughly how long it will take to complete the job.
Our editing services can blend over into coaching if you'd like. We will provide explanations for why we are making certain edits so that you can see why we are doing what we are doing. This takes a bit longer than regular editing, so the cost will increase accordingly.
Coaching over email, phone, or Skype costs $75/contact hour. Prior to the session(s), we will review writing samples you have provided so that the time spent in the coaching session is targeted and efficient.
In-person coaching is available within 10 miles of West Philadelphia.
The time we need to complete your project will depend on how extensive it is and our current workload. We will discuss deadlines with you at the outset. If you need a rush job, we can usually accommodate that, but we reserve the right to charge a 15% additional fee for projects with tight deadlines.
