Editing Services

I am an experienced writer and editor, able to help you improve a wide range of texts – from tidying up final drafts to helping you develop pieces at an early stage in the writing process.

I offer a number of different services and am available to work with you on virtually any kind of writing, such as:

  • journal articles
  • applications
  • conference papers
  • theses and dissertations
  • artist’s statements
  • business documents
  • web content

It is impossible to be sure how long or onerous a particular job will be until I see a text and begin to work on it, so I charge by the hour rather than per word. I am happy to discuss discounts for individuals and organisations with financial limitations. There is a 20% surcharge if you need a job to be completed within one week.

Basic proofreading: Correcting spelling, grammar and punctuation.
€35/hour

Line editing: Sentence level improvements to ensure clarity and consistency.
€50/hour

Developmental editing: After consulting with you in some detail about your aims, I will make substantial suggestions about the structure and style of the text.
€65/hour
