Will Write for Roof

Beyond the glamorous world of travel writing, detailing the quality and quantity of changing tables in Children’s Museum restrooms across the country, I do other freelance writing and also some ghosting. Once I traded web page edits for tree trimming, and since it turned out that the tree was dead, and had to come down completely, I think I made about $500 an hour on that one.

We could use a new roof. Anyone who does slate and wants a better blog, should contact me.

However, generally my rates are more reasonable.

Service Per Page (250 words) Hourly
Basic Proofreading

Copy arrives polished, but needs a final, thorough read-through for surface errors in spelling, punctuation, and minor sentence-level revision.

2.50 $20

Includes Basic Proofreading, but also alerts the author to issues concerning organization, clarity, redundancies, and inconsistencies.

$3.00 $30

Sometimes a piece needs more than Proofreading and Editing to meet its intention. Revision involves rewriting to fully convey the piece’s intention to its audience.

Individual consultation, in person or via phone or Skype, also available to shape a piece, talk through problem areas, or provide other writing advice and suggestions. Minimum fee: $20 for up to 15 minutes, and an additional $10 for every 10 minutes thereafter.
