  • Writing and Editing Rates

    My fees reflect the quality of the work I do: I provide a tailored, consultative service and deliver a high standard of writing that considers your business objectives.

    I offer fixed fee pricing for all projects — not a rate per page or per word. The fee will vary depending on the length and complexity of the project.


    Based on your requirements, I'll put together a quote or proposal, inclusive of my recommendations and the fee.


    For writing projects, I'll ask you to complete a briefing document. We may also speak via Skype to run through additional details about your business and goals.


    For editing projects, you'll need to send me an example of the work to be reviewed.


    Payment for all work is made upfront. For larger projects, I'll ask for a 50% deposit to start work, with the final 50% to be paid on completion.


    If you have any questions about how we work together, please contact me. I'd be happy to assist.
