How to Charge for Editing and Proofreading

Recommended Posts

I recently started working with an author but I really am not sure what type of rates I should be billing and how to bill it? Per page/chapter etc? Thanks in advance for any advice you can give

You can use the EFA rates as a guideline. These are averages but you can use them as a starting point for your particular services. The rates were from a poll the EFA did to establish a standard.


I use the hourly rates they give as that guide to quote flat rates for clients. It's more cost effective for them, and if you know what you can do in an hour, then you can adjust accordingly.

It also helps establish your base pricing so you don't sell yourself short while providing a way to stay within a client's budget. Hope this helps. :)
