Level 2: Copy Editing
Agreement & Order Form
Level 2: Copyediting/$10 per page/50-page minimum
Copyediting addresses mechanics and style of the existing content. Copyediting goes a step beyond line editing to flag basic errors such as repetitive or inappropriate word usage, subject/verb agreement, and sentence structure issues. This level of copyediting is performed when an author requests "a medium edit." The editor will make minor corrections with track changes enabled and comments inserted which provide the reason for the editorial change or query the author in places where the editor requires the author to clarify the meaning of a passage.
Author's cost is $10 per page with a 50-consecutive page minimum. One page = 250 words. Payment in advance is required. No refunds for copyediting services will be given. (Academic, healthcare, and technical editing has different pricing and a separate checkout button.) We suggest new clients contract for one chapter to test the author/editor relationship before submitting their entire manuscript. Submit manuscripts using the Upload MS page listed under the Contact Us tab. Please update the quantity in the cart to match the exact number of pages you are sending. Please email us in advance to schedule a series of appointments to keep your book-length project on track. Thanks for choosing Written by a Pro.
