Proofreading and copy editing
From £10.00 + VAT per thousand words. Minimum charge £30 + VAT
Web page PDFs £30 + VAT per hour

What does this cover?
Any piece of text you want me to check. I work on books, technical manuals, blogs, and marketing literature, to name a few. I ask you to let me see a sample of the piece before I quote, so that we are both clear about exactly what is involved.

My charges are different if you want me to check a piece that has been translated from another language, or which is written by someone not a native English speaker. Please see the Localising section below for more details.

What if my piece is urgent?
I can sometimes accommodate pieces with a very short turnaround, so please ask. I do reserve the right to charge more for this service.

I’m a self-published author. What are your charges for this?
I offer a discount on my normal rate of £10 per 1,000 words on proofreading if you want to self publish. Please get in touch so we can discuss your needs.

Localising
From £12.00 + VAT per thousand words

Editing
Please contact me to discuss charges.

What does this cover?
Substantive editing is a different skill from proofreading and copy editing. It looks at the structure of your work and how it can be improved. I will also look at the style and grammar you use.

I’m a self-published author. What are your charges for this?
I offer a considerable discount on editing if you want to self publish. Please get in touch so we can discuss your needs.

Copy writing
£30 an hour, with a minimum charge of £30 + VAT.

What does this cover?
My copy writing charge covers the research I need to do before writing your piece, as well as the writing itself, and any re-writes necessary. I charge by the minute. I will give you an estimate before I start work, and will contact you if unexpected problems occur which mean the project will take longer than I originally anticipated.

Payment terms
Payment is due as soon as I have submitted the piece to you. I accept payment by bank transfer, Paypal, or cheque, and will invoice you once the piece is done.
