Editing Services

As of August 2018, I will be taking on editing clients and am currently booking for February and March. 

What are my qualifications, you ask? I recently finished my B.A. in English and Creative Writing this past December with a 3.9 GPA. I studied Spanish for eight years and Latin for four. I’m also a member of Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society. I follow the Chicago Manual of Style. I currently work full-time as a copywriter for a marketing agency.

Because I know editing can be a huge expense for new indie authors, I’m keeping the rates I had from when I was still in school. Many editors charge thousands for one manuscript. Please note that 250 words is considered one page. Rates are as follows:

Heavy Copyediting: $0.008/word or $2.00/page
Light Copyediting: $0.006/word or $1.50/page
Proofreading: $0.003/word or $0.75/page

Currently, I am not offering developmental editing. I am, however, offering free sample edits. The level of copyediting needed will be determined based on your sample.

Please make sure your manuscript has been through beta readers before you contact me for editing services.

To reserve your spot, please email me at allison@thesentrancedwriter.com with your word count, genre, and the first ten pages of your manuscript.
