Freelance Writing

As you can see, I’m a writer. Besides being an outlet for my thoughts, and a service to the community, this blog also serves as a portfolio. The bad news is that I can’t post everything I write to it and have it be a good product: I have written many things that don’t fit the theme of Witchful Thinking. In particular, I write fiction, poetry, reviews, do academic research, editing, and technical writing. The good news is that I can put my talents and skills to use for you.

Approximate Prices for Services Rendered

  • Editing Services: I’ll check for grammar, spelling, punctuation and consistency. I’ll work with you to make sure your writing is clear and says what you want it to say, without changing the meaning.
    $170 flat fee for up to 35 pages. Afterwards, $3 per page.
  • Comprehensive Copyediting: We will go over your manuscript line-by-line and look for comprehension, clarity, style, tone, concept, rephrasing, reorganization and conventions. It’s like having your very own English teacher…only nicer. And no halitosis. And you’re not in high school.

Typically, half of the expected total is paid up front, and the rest is due when services are rendered. I usually have a fast turn-around time but please specify your deadline. Deadlines that are moved up may be subject to a fee.

You always have the option of using or dismissing any editing suggestion.

Prices are subject to change based on project and market variability.
