Have an emergency? I can possibly accommodate your emergency for an additional $20/hour on the fee.


You’re welcome to ask if my schedule is clear for an emergency edit with no expedited rate.


I may also reduce the expedited rate if I’m not completely booked but your project still causes a minor disruption.

Factors that affect price:

  • word count
  • level of self-editing for basic errors
  • type of editing requested/required
