Hi,

I’ve been a freelance editor for five years and I’ve always charged by the hour, unless the client has given me a budget. You can get yourself into trouble if you charge by the word block or page, because a passage of text that’s well written won’t take as long to proofread or edit as a passage that’s a real mess and needs a lot of work, so you could end up ripping yourself off. Charging by the hour is the fairest option for you, I think.

Cheers,

Brooke
