How Much Do Services Cost?

The price of a job is affected by a number of variables (e.g., the number of services requested, the length of the document, the complexity of the task). Every job is unique, and every customer has a different set of needs and expectations.

The chart provided will give you a ballpark figure of what particular services cost.

How Do I Know What Service I Need?

Proofreading

You created a document, but you’re worried that it may contain errors.

  • Spelling, grammar, and punctuation are not your strong suit.
  • You’re not sure if you cited your sources properly.
  • There are strict submission guidelines about formatting.

You need a pro with a keen eye for detail who can correct the mistakes but preserve your voice… a PROOFREADER.

Editing

There is a document, but it needs some tweaking, if not a major makeover.

  • The wording is hard to follow, or lacks punch.
  • The content is not organized in a logical sequence.
  • The information is outdated, making the document unusable.

You need a pro who can communicate ideas–even complex ones–in clear, straightforward language… an EDITOR.

Writing

No document currently exists. You may not even be sure what you need.

  • You know what you want to say, but you can’t put it into words.
  • You’re an expert in your field, and your time would be better spent doing what you do rather than writing about it.

You need a pro who can take your raw ideas and craft them into a powerful, memorable message… a WRITER.

You need THE WORD DOCTOR.

That’s meBarry Bridwell.

I have experience writing, editing, and proofreading a wide range of documents and styles.
