GENERAL PROOFREADING RATES
$20 flat rate
Short writing projects:
Social media content
$60 flat rate
Longer, more involved projects:
If you need proofreading for a manuscript, I may be available to help. Please email me to discuss my rate. If I’m not available, I will put you in touch with another excellent proofreader who can help.
Please send the final draft of your work. A proofreader should be the last pair of eyes on an almost-ready piece of writing.
Your document will be corrected in PDF format or in Google Docs, whichever you prefer.
I do NOT proofread the content of academic essays that will be submitted for grading. Schools have academic integrity policies that prohibit students from using proofreaders. Your teachers need to see you display your own writing abilities. If you’d like someone to guide you as you develop your writing skills, please try contacting your school’s writing center for FREE help.
