Editing Services

The Writing Center maintains a list of qualified community editors for interested faculty. While faculty are welcome to negotiate rates and deadlines with individual editors, they should expect to pay approximately $.04 - .10/word for professional editing or consulting services. Rates may increase depending on factors such as turnaround time and type of editing needed. 

Interested faculty should contact Justin Bain with the following information: 

  • Name and contact information (email or phone)
  • Topic of paper and specific field/discipline
    • Length of paper
    • Deadline
  • Type of editing (basic copyediting, organization, argument, citations, etc.)

Once Justin has received this information, he will forward it to editors who best match the requirements. Interested editors will then contact faculty directly to discuss payment, etc.
