Editing Services

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

What are my qualifications, you ask? I am an English and Creative Writing major with a 3.9 GPA and a projected graduation date of December 2018. 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.

Due to the fact that I am a student, my rates are fairly low. 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 or substantive/line editing. I am, however, offering free sample edits. The level of copyediting needed will be determined based on your sample.

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