Editing and Editorial Management

Before submitting an estimate for your project, I will evaluate several pages of your manuscript and determine the level of editing or proofreading and draft a proposal outlining what I can do for you.

Common editorial rates – regardless of whether the fee is by project, per page, or hourly – tend to fall within the ranges indicated below. These should be used only as a guideline; rates vary depending on the nature of the work, the time frame of the assignment, the degree of expertise required, and other factors.


·       Developmental: editing: 1–5 pages per hour, $50–$55 per hour

·       Substantive: editing: 1–6 ms pages per hour, $50–$60 per hour

·       Copyediting: (basic): 3–8 ms pages per hour,  $35–$50 per hour

·       Proofreading: 7–10 ms pages per hour, $35 per hour
