Editing Rates

Nest Egg



Editing is usually contracted for on an hourly basis, though flat editor rates can be negotiated on a project-by-project basis.

Developmental editing, line editing: $150/hour

Minor rewriting is included in the editing process. Teaching is not. Neither is a full rewrite, which must be contracted for separately.


Clients paying by the hour are charged pay half of the total estimated fee in advance, and the balance upon delivery of edit. Flat rates are charged half in advance, and half upon delivery of edit.


Sorry . . . no refunds will be provided unless the editing work has not yet been started.
