Who do you work with?

I work with a variety of freelance clients, but most are established businesses both large and small. I occasionally work with individual clients, but the cost of my services can be high for an individual’s budget. Let’s discuss what you have in mind.

What do you charge?

I base my fees on the size of the project, how soon it is needed, and how complex the work is, including how many revisions are required. I work on flat fee, hourly and retainer.

  • My hourly fees range from $45 per hour to $150 per hour, depending on the project.
  • Many clients prefer to use a flat fee approach However, even a flat fee project can have additional costs if the work involved goes beyond the criteria established for the flat fee.
  • Certain very large, long term or complex projects (such as screenplays, longer scripts or documentaries, or very large reports, etc.) have their own pricing strategies based on industry standards.
  • Editing pricing varies depending on the depth of editing needed and the size of the project.
  • Please Note: I am a content editor or developmental editor. While everything I work on is proofread to meet general business standards, I am not a copy editor. Copy editing is a specialized type of editing that focuses on formatting, style, consistency and the general issues of grammar, punctuation, and other “mechanical” details.

How does it work?

Generally, I bill one third of a project in advance, based on estimated hours required or the flat fee. The second third is due on delivery of first draft, and the last third is due on delivery of the final product.

When a first draft is delivered, a revision is included in the fee. A second revision may be included IF it is for relatively small corrections or changes. Extensive revisions after that (since initial discussions would have included original specifics about the scope, style, and details of of a project) may be billed separately.
