A Writing Journey

Editor for Hire

As you know, I am a writer. You may not know that I also edit work (and not just my own). I have edited both fiction and non-fiction for friends and family members. I am now opening that opportunity up to you, my blogging buddies!

Proofreading consists of checking for typos and formatting issues. (That’s errors such as misspellings, lonely words, and accuracy with page numbers and table of contents.) Proofreading is most helpful for a fully finished draft that has gone through many revisions and is about to be sent in for consideration (or in the case of articles and papers, turned in). Proofreading should be your last step.

Copy editing is for checking grammar, syntax, capitalization and punctuation, missed words, repeated words, using the best word for the job, tenses, and other language errors. This step is for when you have your story completed and are ready to get your hands dirty with polishing it.

Content editing is the most involved step, and the first one you should take with an editor. This is when we look at what parts of your story (article, paper, blog post, etc.) need to be revised and rewritten, if the plot is well-developed, if there are discrepancies to be fixed, if your characters believable, and if your story flows well.


Proofreading $10.00/ 10,000 words

Copy editing $11.00/ 10,000 words

Content editing $12.00/ 10,000 words

Proofreading and copy editing $19.00/ 10,000 words

Proofreading and content editing $20.00/ 10,000 words

Copy editing and content editing $21.00/ 10,000 words

Proofreading, copy editing, and content editing $30.00/ 10,000 words

Basic Guidelines:

If you are hiring for proofreading, I expect a polished and complete piece of writing. I will work with up to 100,000 words at this point.

I will edit first 1,500 words for free. You can look to see if you like the style and way I edit, and we can continue from there at the above rates. Email me at emilyramos402@gmail.com
