How much will it cost?

This will vary depending on several factors, including the word count, the complexity of the text and the amount of work required in order to bring the text into line with where you would like it to be.

How long will it take?

This will depend on the same factors as above. I am always happy to consider jobs with tight deadlines. Get in touch to discuss.

How will you give me feedback?

Each project is different, but generally speaking:

For a copy-edit, documents will be provided as Word files, with changes tracked and notes and queries inserted as embedded comments within the file. I often also provide a second Word file with all of these changes accepted, to serve as the ‘Master’ file.

Proofread files will be delivered as PDFs, with passages highlighted containing instructions for changes required, along with any queries I may have. I can also proofread a hard copy if that is preferred.
