Rates

Fees are those recommended by the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.

Type of work Hourly rate
Proofreading £23.35
Copy-editing £27.15
Substantial editing, rewriting £31.30

On documents with a large word count, fees can be negotiated.

Proofreading of students’ essays is charged at a discounted rate. Please submit a sample of writing in order that I can estimate a fee for you. A reduced fee can also be negotiated for dissertations and doctoral theses on submission of sample pages.

If you are uncertain which service your document requires, I can calculate a fee on submission of a few pages. I will then provide an estimate of the total cost.

If the document proves to be more demanding either in terms of time, or in the type of service required once editing or proofreading is under way, I will inform you of this at the earliest opportunity. Please see the code of practice of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
