Copyediting

Level I Copyediting

Level I copyediting covers all the basics of editing, which are required to bring a manuscript up to a publishable standard. The editing will make changes to a manuscript where there are spelling, punctuation, and grammatical errors. Additionally, the editor may include notes, queries, and suggestions about the content, particularly in areas where there is a need for further development, further explanation, additions or omissions. The returned manuscript will include changes visible through Microsoft Word's Track Changes feature.

The price for editing is $140.00 for up to 10,000 words. For each additional 10,000 words, add one unit to the total. Approximate turnaround is two weeks for every 60,000 words.

Substantive/Developmental Editing

Level II Editing
280.00

Level II editing, often called developmental or substantive editing, is designed for authors who are seeking more than a basic copyedit of their manuscript. The editor spends a great deal of time looking at deeper issues, such as character development, storyline progression, and writing style. Level II editing oftentimes requires one-on-one dialogue with the author, and the editor may assign additional writing, research, and other work to bring the manuscript up to publishable standards.

Pricing is $280 per 10,000 words. Expect a turnaround of four weeks per 60,000 words.
