SERVICES & RATES
I provide writing, editing and research services to individuals and organizations, including university faculty and students, publishers, government departments, businesses, non-profits and aspiring writers. I have written and edited the following types of documents:

- government reports and policy documents
- book-length manuscripts
- book proposals
- literary essays and short stories
- web text and promotional material

My rates are comparable to those recommended by the Editorial Freelancers Association and depend on document length, turn-around time and type of work required (see descriptions below). In most cases, I will provide a detailed quote based on a two-page sample. A contract will be arranged before payment is made or work begins. Please contact me for further information.
