EDITING SERVICES

WOULD YOU LIKE TO PUBLISH MORE FREQUENTLY?

MAKE SURE YOUR MANUSCRIPTS ARE

CLEAR

Whether or not English is your first language, I’ll edit your text for clarity and comprehension, focusing on your target audience and the ultimate aim of your manuscript or grant proposal.

CONCISE

A crucial editing task is to remove every word that doesn’t strengthen the text. I’ll ensure that your writing is succinct and meets page limits without sacrificing nuance or relevant details.

COMPELLING

Even complex issues, when expressed with attention to elements such as rhythm, strong verbs, and effective transitions, can read smoothly. Readers appreciate and remember effective writing.

RATES AND OTHER INFORMATION 

I arrive at my estimate by doing a sample edit (at no charge) of two pages of your text, If you’re sending a Word file, I’ll use Track Changes so that you can see the kinds of changes I would propose.  If you’re sending a PDF, please make sure the text is double spaced, since I’ll be working by hand (and will scan and send the edited pages).

I charge $USD 80/hour ($USD 95/hour rush) and accept payment via PayPal, Zelle, wire transfer, and purchase order.

If you have questions or would like to discuss a writing project, e-mail editorbjn@gmail.com or call (434) 260-2817. For a sample edit, send your text as an attachment and other relevant information (deadline, journal you’re submitting to, etc.); I’ll respond with my estimate within 24 hours.
