NON-FICTION EDITING

Harmonizing your writing for impact

There are many different kinds of writing and editing services. I specialize in developmental editing and copyediting.

Developmental editing focuses on the big picture. How the work is structured, the message, content, impact. 

Copyediting focuses on the words chosen, grammar, sentence flow, format. 

Here are three excellent ways for us to work together:

 

"Just Get It Done" Short-Form Editing – $85/hour

This option is designed for fully written, short-form content such bios, blog posts, brief articles, marketing copy and guides (under 10 pages). Don’t let yourself get stalled over a piece of writing. Often what’s needed is a new energy, perspective and some professional push. I’m happy to be that person for you. 

For reference: A document with one-inch margins and 12-point Times New Roman font has about 500 words for a single-spaced page and 250 words for a double-spaced page. Depending on the complexity, I estimate about 2-4 pages per hour. This means, for example, a double-spaced, three-page piece of content would be about $85 x 1.5 hours = $127.50.

You can expect:

  • Developmental editing and copyediting

  • A fresh perspective

  • Potentially some rewrites with tracked changes

  • Suggestions for additional content, if necessary

  • A whole lot of love and attention

Writing Collaboration – $0.08/word

We go really deep here. This option is designed for more complex writing projects, such as books and ebooks.

 

We start with your fully written work. We brainstorm what is needed, what may be missing.

 

Then, I take a pass at the work. This often includes reorganizing and rewriting content. I track my changes and, in a debrief conversation, walk through my thought processes on the more major edits.

I always edit a short section first and send for your review to make sure we are on the same page.

We may bounce the document back and forth, each tweaking a bit more, until there is a product that THRILLS YOU.

Start with a FREE editing consultation: Send me a 2-4 page (500-1,000 word) sample of your work and we can go from there, determining your needs, and estimating rates and a payment program that works for your project.
