Do I need proofreading or copy editing?

If you would like a sample of my proofreading or copy editing, I would be happy to review and edit a one-page (double-spaced) version of your writing for a minimum charge (in advance) of $30 for proofreading and $40 for copy editing. Longer versions will be charged in advance at my regular hourly rates. Payment can be made by credit card at:

Please notify me if your documents are in British or Canadian English.

As a courtesy, please PAGINATE all originals!

All changes are marked up on the hard copy, unless otherwise requested. If you wish your document to have changes tracked through a "track changes" function, the cost for the project could be more.

Client will be charged extra if formatting problems arise—and require fixing—during proofreading or copy editing.
