**2017 UPDATE** I am currently fully booked and unable to accept any new clients personally. 
A limited amount of stylistic editing only is available for those amenable to having their work edited by one of my subcontractors - a small group of professional editors whom I trust completely. The rates are the same and the process is double blind (like a journal review). I oversee all projects, quality check the work, and handle all billing and communication.  

services & rates 

All editing rates are charged in half-hour increments; writing coaching/consulting is charged in quarter-hour increments. Precise rates are determined once a sample of the text has been evaluated. 


Stylistic Editing

·    Checking the text for correct spelling, basic grammar, punctuation, sentence structure

·     Ensuring consistency; checking for missing or          repeated words

·    Formatting citations, notes, and bibliography, upon request

·    Improving basic style and language flow     

·    Done in-text using the Track Changes feature of Word

$60 - 70/ 

hour

Developmental Editing

·    Working with the text at the level of ideas, arguments, and their arrangement

·    Re-organizing and revising as needed to improve logical flow, pacing, and persuasiveness

·    Engaging with the substantive content of the text and flagging areas in need of more development

·    Bringing text in line with word limits

·    The specific format varies, but developmental editing is generally done in-text using the Track Changes feature of Word, with additional feedback via margin comments, e-mail, and/or an optional review memo (see below)

·    Optional: Authors can request an in-depth review memo (usually around 4–5 pages) identifying the piece’s strengths and weaknesses, and suggesting strategies for moving forward (not unlike a journal peer review)  

$70 - 80/

hour

Surviving the Article/Manuscript Review Process –  

a.k.a. “So, You Got a ‘Revise & Resubmit’ – Now What?”

·    Reading all original and revised versions of the   text, as well as all reader reports and correspondence with editor(s)

·    Developing a strategy and schedule for responding to reviews and preparing a response memo/letter

·    Providing developmental editing informed by the reader reviews in order to maximize the chances the article will be accepted post-revisions

$80 - 90/

hour

Writing Coaching/Consulting

·    One-on-one e-mail, phone, or Skype consultations to discuss the writing process, develop a writing plan, and set goals and deadlines 

$60/hour

Rush Fees

I reserve the right to charge a rush fee for any jobs that need to be turned around in less than a week (or less than two weeks for larger projects).

 



turnaround time 

Average turnaround time is two weeks. I realize it is not always easy to know when you will finish a project, but if you know that you are working with a particular deadline, contact me as soon as possible. Larger dissertation- or book-sized projects require advance notice of at least 3 weeks before being submitted for editing.
