Prices and Turnaround Times
How Long Will My Project Take?
For a copyedit, I work at the rate of about 1 hour for every 1,000-1,500 words. So if you have a 5,000-word piece, that will take approximately five hours.
I can only work four hours a day for a specific client. So if you have a 25,000-word piece, that's 25 hours over seven days. This estimate includes reference formatting.
A proofread takes a shorter amount of time, about 2,000-2,500 words per hour.
Someday I will have a fancy calculator on this site that will estimate times and prices for you, but until then, I hope this is helpful!
