As a rule of thumb, SC Visel Edits charges about $0.03 per word. Your costs may vary, depending on length of your work, your specific needs, time requirements, and other factors. Our rates are based on the median rates charged by members of the Editorial Freelancers Association.
Is that a lot? I’ll let you do the math for your story, but 5,000-word short story would run about $150, and a 100,000-word novel around $3000. Again, contact us for a specific quote based on your needs. If you need your epic fantasy story edited by next Tuesday, we will work with you, but costs will be higher.
