Proofreading: 0.8 cent* per word

This is a more involved editing process for projects that need considerable reorganization and in-depth rewriting. Recommendations are made to improve the writing's overall composition, coherence, clarity, and structure. The writing will need to be reviewed prior to estimating a project rate.

* For projects requiring a short turnaround time, a surcharge may be added.

Services & Rates

Eloquent Edits offers professional editing and proofreading services at an affordable rate. Pricing is based on the number of words in the document and the level of editing required. 

Proofreading is one final pass of an already-edited work. Proofreading is not an in-depth edit. It is a final review of a piece of work that has gone through a professional edit and needs a final proof to ensure that no major errors have slipped through. Keep in mind that if you have chosen any of the above editing services, proofreading is already included with that service.

Comprehensive Editing: 1.8 cents* per word


No editing changes will be made without the author's approval. The author always has the final say on all edits.

Basic Editing: 1.2 cents* per word
