So far in my editing career, I’ve edited two theses for master’s degrees in the field of business, which each amounted to 75~ pages of text, not including figures, charts, appendices, etc. I’ve also edited a pastor’s essay application for an Elder position in the United Methodist Church (somewhere from 25-50 pages). Through these jobs, I’ve worked with both technical jargon and deeply personal reflections. I’ve also built websites for Gideon Grove UMC and THLT & Fleet Service, a small church and a small business.

Because I’m getting established as a freelance editor, rates are negotiable. For a fee of $20, I will edit the first five pages of text and scan the rest of the paper to assess how long editing may take and offer you an estimate for the whole project. That way, you’ll see a sample of how I can enhance your work, and you won’t have to commit initially. For a website, the baseline price for one year with a URL on WordPress is $48 (which you will renew annually), though businesses may want an upgraded plan. I will charge a one-time fee for setting everything up, which will depend on how much time is spent.

My rates are low right now, so take advantage! Email me at lmpierc3@uncg.edu.
