It’s difficult to give an exact cost as it will depend on several factors, such as the type and size of your project, the level of editing or proofreading required, and the turnaround time you need.

Get in touch for a discussion and I can give you an estimate – no obligation!

Larger projects, such as proofreading or editing books, will usually need to be booked in advance. Smaller projects, such as website reviews, magazine articles and business literature, can often be slotted into my schedule sooner, but it’s always best to plan ahead as much as possible.

Book manuscripts

As a guide, my charges for working on book manuscripts or similar large documents fall within a range:

Copy-editing:    Between £7 and £12 per 1,000 words

Proofreading:   Between £4 and £8 per 1,000 words

Book formatting:   From £150

Consultation/project management:   Varies, depending on your requirements

I am always happy to do what I can to assist with your budget, for example:

  • Advising you as to what you can do to bring costs down
  • Offering payment in instalments
  • Offering a 10% discount if you book more than one service

Smaller projects

For smaller projects, such as website reviews, magazine articles and business literature, my charges are based on the above guidelines, but I will need to see the work to give an accurate cost.

I can often fit smaller projects into my schedule and will do my utmost to meet your deadlines.
