Developmental and Editing Fees
In a personal consultation (either in person, by phone, or virtually), we’ll review your ideas together and make a plan for moving forward.
Once you’ve written the first draft, I’ll review it and provide you with feedback and suggestions. We will discuss and brainstorm together as you continue to revise. Typically several rounds of revisions are needed before your final draft. Once you’re happy with the essay, I’ll thoroughly edit it at that time.
If you hire me for proofreading only, I charge a flat rate.*

*Sometimes more extensive copyediting is needed before the essay is ready to be proofread. In that case, I charge an hourly fee of $75.
