Writing & Editing Fees

Fees for the above services are negotiable and can be arranged in a number of ways:

  • Hourly rates
  • Monthly retainer
  • Per-project fee

Currently, standard hourly rates are $85 per hour for writing, $60 per hour for revising and editing, and $35 per hour for proofreading (light editing with focus on grammar and mechanics).*

* Rates for copy that is technical or specialized may be slightly higher. All rates include agreed-upon research or fact-checking, which increases time spent and is provided at the same rate.
