All costs are subject to negotiation and a written agreement that works for both of us.
Once we agree to payment, I will honor that agreement.
All payment, including piece-rates and price-caps, circle around my usual hourly rate, which is a rate of $50 (standard), $65 to $75 (complex content). I may work on a piece rate or apply a price-cap, for regular clients. This practice helps you keep your budget predictable.
Editing, including developmental editing, copy editing to a stylebook (AP, CMOS, your company’s stylebook): $50 per hour.
Medically focused writing and editing, with research drawn and translated from clinical trials and medical documents: $65 per hour. Price-caps or project-phasing may be offered, to help you keep your budget in-check.
Legal writing, with research drawn from court-documents: $65 per hour. Price-caps or project-phasing may be offered, to help you keep your budget in-check.
Writing with research required: $1 per word.
Light feature-style writing, and blog posts with sources provided: piece-rates negotiable. A 500-word blog post with minimal research is generally $100. Projects with deeper research-requirements may include a research-fee: a flat-rate, to keep your budget predictable.
Bios: Negotiable, based on the above rate, with price-caps available: 500 words, $100. Additional requirements such as phone-consultation and outside research may increase cost.
