Happy to work with unpublished and new authors. Resume available upon request.
As an editor, I take both copyediting and proofreading into consideration. My expertise is US English, but I can work in UK English as well. I am well versed in CMOS, MLA, and APA. Alternatively, I can follow an in-house style guide as long as you provide it. I have working knowledge of AP Style. I will always strive to make your work as clear, correct, concise, comprehensible, and consistent as possible.
Rate: $5 per 250 words ($0.02 per word) or $25 an hour. I am also open to being paid on a per project basis.
Free Sample Edit: Potential clients can send me an excerpt of their work (consisting of no more than 1,000 words) for a free sample edit.
Editing Methods: I primarily edit using the Track Changes features in Microsoft Word, but I’m also comfortable marking up a PDF using Adobe Reader. To date, I’ve edited everything from web pages to scholarly works and books of all sorts, including how-to manuals, self-help guides, fictional works, and religious publications.
As a transcriber, I’ve got a keen ear and can make out a variety of accents in English. My standard rate is $60 per audio hour of good-quality audio. I can work with fair- or poor-quality audio, but it’s going to cost more and will take longer than 48 hours to complete. I have experience in transcribing interviews, conferences, lectures, and webinars; I have also created subtitles for feature-length films using Aegisub.
All prices are negotiable, but if you’re considering hiring me, please understand that I take my work very seriously and believe in providing a high-quality end product. Having said that, I also firmly believe in being fairly compensated for what I do. Thank you for your time and attention.
