Greetings, prospective client! My name's Warren Hinckle, and I'm an editor with a knack for the written word, how the English language flows on the page, for writing - and I've even dabbled in transcription. More than that, I enjoy all of this. Seriously. If I didn't I'd ditch freelancing as a career and try to get a stable job with things like 'security' and 'benefits' and 'fair wage' and 'pay by the hour' and all of the other joys of normal work.
I'm sure you want to see some qualifications: I received a B.A. in English - my concentration was writing - from Loyola University New Orleans in 2012. I also minored in Philosophy. You can probably tell that the skills I learned during my academic career involve writing, reading, more writing, and editing. I've been editing for a few years now - much more frequently the last six months - and it doesn't seem I'll grow tired of it anytime soon.
What's my turn-around like? It depends on the project - but I aim for 48 hours at the latest. If you absolutely need it rushed, I can do 24.
I'm just going to throw some prices over here. I've found there's a disconnect in what people say they want from an edit and what they actually want, so it seems important.
Proof-reading! I'll go through your article, fix your grammar, make little improvements, make little comments asking for clarity here and there, and so on. This is not a huge edit; this is when you want a second pair of eyes for a quick read.
Proof-reading is .40 cents per 100 words; there is no limit on the size of the piece (a thousand words, five thousand, fifty thousand - same price). It's $6.00 by the hour.
Editing! I don't have a light / heavy division; I just edit. I'll fix your grammar and your syntax, cut out every unneeded word and sentence, make comments, make suggestions, and generally tear into your writing with so much vigor you might think I have something against it.
Editing is .80 cents per 100 words - and comes out to $12.00 an hour.
The price is a bit negotiable; if you can promise a constant flow of work, I wouldn't be against going down a bit.
What about writing? A dollar per 100 words. It's is negotiable!
What about transcription? I aim for around $0.75 per audio minute - much like writing, that is also negotiable!
