This all depends on what level of editing you are requiring.

I can either check your work for basic errors at a lower rate, correcting only the mistakes that are there, or I can give a more in-depth copy-edit, spending more time with you to help you improve the overall readability of your copy by giving plenty of feedback and advice for you to consider.

Since I am fairly new to the business, I offer a reduced fee so that you, in turn, can help me to build up my portfolio. For suggested minimum rates, you can visit the Society for Editors and Proofreaders to see how my rates compare.

I can also evaluate your referencing and format your bibliography but any extras will cost more, depending on the length of the copy and the amount of work that is required.
