Below is a rundown of some of my basic editing services (all prices include GST).
$35 for a 400 to 500-word piece, e.g. a blog post or advertisement.
This includes spelling and grammar mistakes, as well as, where appropriate, adjustments in sentence structure and/or word choice to enhance the effectiveness of the writing.
$80 for a 1,000-word piece
Cost includes all the above services and, additionally, comment boxes if I change something that you may question. I can justify every change that I make.
$120 for a piece from 1,000 to 2,500 words.
This is often the approximate length of advertising pamphlets, so this is money well spent - nothing turns a professional client off more than a spelling or grammar mistake!
$50 to make a Press Release punchier.
Prices for academic papers -
* $30 per 250 - 280 words (e.g. a typical IELTS Writing Task 2 essay).
* $250 per 3,000 words, or $320 per 5,000 words (e.g. a capstone).
All academic editing work includes comment boxes in the edit, and the opportunity of asking me follow up questions regarding the changes that I have made.
Prices for creative works
(e.g. short stories, novellas, scripts or full manuscripts)
* $120 for works up to 2,000 words.
* $220 for works up to 5,000 words.
$350 for works up to 10,000 words.

*** EDITING COURSE ***
Any other editing job is considered, no job too big or too small. I’m very happy to negotiate. I can edit in any genre, on any topic, for any industry, formal or informal, factual or creative.
REMEMBER, A LAZY EDITOR JUST CORRECTS MISTAKES.
A GOOD EDITOR MAKES A PIECE OF WRITING COME ALIVE.
THIS IS WHAT I DO.
