Flat rate, hourly, per word, per page…Options abound when contracting for writing or editing services.
Writers and editors generally charge for their services as follows:
• By project
• By the hour
• Per word
• Per 250-word page
• On retainer
• Some combination of the above
I can provide a fee estimate after reviewing your project. Fees typically charged by freelance publishing professionals (including writers, editors, graphic designers, and proofreaders) may be found in the Editorial Freelancers Association rate chart. Note that the fees listed by the EFA are guidelines only; many established professionals charge more, while those with less experience may discount their rates.
