The best writers know this much to be true: they wouldn’t be the best writers without their editors. Marya has worked as a freelance editor for more than 20 years. Her approach is informed by that extensive hands-on editing experience, as well as her 25 years as a writing teacher working with student material of all kinds. From a close line-edit of a nearly finished work to big-picture editorial feedback on some fresh new ideas you’re just jotting down—wherever you are in the writing process, Marya can help you bring your manuscript to the next level.
Rates are based on the stage of the manuscript and the length of time Marya will need to spend helping you meet your goals. A full read-through and editorial letter in response to a manuscript over 200 pages will start at $350; closer editing and more detailed feedback will go up from there. You’ll have the option of a flat fee for the whole project, or an hourly rate $85/hr. (Example Rate: MS 200+ pages $350 + 85/hr ) Please contact Marya directly for a specific quote. Send your inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line RE: Editing. Please include as much detail about your manuscript and your goals as you can. Marya will get back to you soon!
