Editing Services

Does your dissertation, thesis, or academic article need revision? Are you looking for someone to edit your novel or memoir? Are you trying to write a grant proposal for an amazing project but don’t know where to begin?

I’m here to help! With 10 years of experience working as a writer and editor, I’ve assisted numerous clients in re-shaping their work, from conception to completion. In particular, I specialize in the following areas:

  • Academic Editing: Dissertations, theses, journal articles
  • Nonprofit Communications and Development: Grant applications/proposals (including government and foundation grants), e-blasts, newsletters, curriculum development
  • General Editing: Essays, novels, memoirs, blog posts, articles, PowerPoint presentations

I follow the suggested editorial rates chart of Editorial Freelancers Association, and as such, my editing rates begin at $60 per hour. (I typically edit about 5-8 pages per hour, with a “page” consisting of about 250 words.) Additionally, I offer current students a special student rate, with editing projects beginning at $40 per hour. Finally, note that I include a “rush rate” charge of an additional 25% for projects with a deadline of 3-4 days, and I add a “rush rate” charge of an additional 50-100% to projects that have a 24- to 48-hour deadline.
