All proofreading jobs are unique and the price could vary depending on the amount of intervention required, but for a rough guide please see below.
For small jobs (10,000 words or fewer) I generally offer a price of £15 per thousand words. For example:
1-1000 words = £15
1001-2000 words = £30
2001-3000 words = £45
And so on, up to 10,000 words (£150).
For medium jobs (10,001-50,000 words) the price reduces to £10 per thousand words. For example:
10,001-20,000 words = £200
20,001-30,000 words = £300
30,001-40,000 words = £400
40,001-50,000 words = £500
For large jobs (50,000+ words) the price reduces to £5 per thousand words above 50,000. For example:
50,001-60,000 words = £550
60,001-70,000 words = £600
70,001-80,000 words (average novel length) = £650
80,001-90,000 words = £700
And so on…

Need proofreading but can’t afford it?
Don’t worry. I may still be able to help you. Please contact me with details of your project and I will see what I can do. I am open to reducing prices in exchange for a skill swap, a client testimonial for my website, or anything that leads to further paid work.
