Working on multi-genre, other genres, or general queer lit?

Send an enquiry anyway! These are just guide prices so you know what to expect.

How it works

  • Fill out the enquiry form below, telling me a little about you and your project.
  • I’ll send you an email back to connect with you, ask some more questions, and request a sample of your work or a link to your website. The sample may be proofread for free if agreed on.
  • Once you’ve agreed to a quote for the work, including a timeline of when work will begin and be returned, I’ll draw up an invoice for any deposit.
  • Deposits must be paid before work can begin.
  • You’ll then send your Word doc, PDF file, or website link to me.
  • Your project will be thoroughly proofread before being sent back.

What you’ll get back

  • For Word files, you’ll receive two files:
    – one Word doc with Track Changes enabled
    – one Word doc with all edits accepted.
  • For PDF files, you’ll receive two files:
    – one PDF with comments of edits to be made
    – one Word doc with any queries for you
  • For websites, you’ll receive one file:
    – a Word doc with comments, screenshots, and notes for changes

All the information in the enquiry form will help me give you an accurate quote and idea of when I can schedule you in.
