Editing Services

I offer editing and proofreading services for short stories and essays between 250 – 10,000 words.

Your short story or essay deserves to look its best. Though it’s always an excellent idea to run your writing through a spell checker, all too often, common spelling errors are missed by computer programs due to homophones. I provide what computers cannot: understanding when the language of a written piece should sound like a business document, an academic paper, a casual blog post, or an engaging story.

I provide over twenty years of experience writing and editing documents and fiction, applying my knowledge to clearing away the errors and tightening writing.

I can deliver corrections in .docx, .pdf, .rtf, or Google Drive. For Standard and Premium packages, this will include both a document that tracks recommended corrections and a formatted document of your story or essay with corrections applied.

Basic: Flash fiction or short essays up to 1,000 words.
$8*, 2 Days (+$10 for rush, 1 day delivery)

Standard: Short stories and essays 1,001 – 5, 000 words.
$18*, 3 Days (+25 for rush, 1 day delivery)

Premium: Short stories and essays 5,001 – 10,000 words.
$28*, 4 Days (+$45 for rush, 1 day delivery)

There are two ways to hire me:

  1. Send a querying email to ravendemers@gmail.com with your requirements, including time frame and priorities, and I will send you an invoice via PayPal.
  2. Select the gig type you prefer from my Fiverr profile and Fiverr will contact me to start the editing process.

If you have a larger project, such as a technical manual, novella, or novel, please consider hiring my favorite editor, Ellen Klowden.

If you require a consultant or sounding board on a fiction project of any length and need help overcoming blocks or developing your ideas, please send a querying email to ravendemers@gmail.com to discuss your needs and schedule time to chat. $20/half hour via private message, phone, or Discord.

*My rates are higher on Fiverr because the site charges freelancers 20% of all earned income, including tips, requires freelancers to wait two weeks to process payments, and then charges $1 to withdraw the net money earned. Freelancers must then wait an additional week to receive the direct deposit.
