Prices

Of course, you want to know what things cost. Every project is different, so I don’t publish my prices. I can provide a general quote when you give me an outline of the work you need doing, and a firm price once I have seen a sample text and we agree to go ahead with your project. I will never sell you a service you don’t need, and I will be honest if I think you aren’t ready for either proofreading or editing, or if I’m not qualified to handle the subject matter.

What else do I do?

    • Editing of English as a foreign language – if you employ staff from overseas, it’s often the case that their spoken English is excellent but that their written skills are less fluent. My 12 years living and working abroad mean I am highly experienced at untangling English written according to the rules of another language.
    • House style for businesses – if your business needs to implement consistency across all its written materials, from the annual report down to the letters you send to your customers, I can create your own in-house style manual and deliver it in print or as a PDF. I can even come in and train your staff.
    • Consultation – I provide a full consultation service on all aspects of writing. If you’re not sure what you need, beyond the above, get in touch to ask about how I can help you, because not all editing tasks are clear-cut.
