Whether you're writing a stellar story, a succinct summary, or a seventeen-page report on sloths, it's important to ensure that your work is easy and pleasing to read. The happier your reader, the better off you'll both be. After looking at your work so many times over, sometimes all you really need is a fresh pair of eyes. That's where an editor comes in.
Margarita Artista would be more than thrilled to assist you with copyediting your work. Specifically, she'll:
Check for grammatical and spelling errors.
Suggest changes to improve flow and clarity.
Identify opportunities for summary, better wording, and structural changes.
Flag areas of your writing that are unclear or hard to understand.
It's as easy as 1-2-3!
You'll send a Microsoft Word draft of your writing via email to Margarita.
Margarita will perform edits in Tracked Changes and send it back to you.
You choose which changes to accept, and which changes to reject.
Margarita's editing rate is $20 CAD per hour of work. Each project is unique and will have its own unique needs. Therefore, it is hard to assign a standard, flat price to any editing job. A quote will be provided to you prior to any work beginning, with considerations towards:
The word count of the project.
How quickly the client needs it edited.
The type of project - generally, fiction takes a bit more time to edit than non-fiction. Additionally, if your project is over 50 pages long, standard business-day timelines will not apply. A timeline for quickest possible completion will be negotiated with you instead.
If you think the quote sounds reasonable, Margarita will draw up a contract. A non-refundable deposit worth 25% of the total editing costs will be collected once the contract is signed, and will count towards your final invoice. All payments will be made via Interac E-Transfer.

Please Note: All projects received will be run through an online plagiarism-checker prior to work beginning. Plagiarism is a violation of integrity and ethics. If any plagiarism is detected within your work, Margarita will automatically reject your editing request. Additionally, Margarita cannot accept any editing requests for healthcare-related material due to the nature of her day-job. Your understanding in these matters is appreciated.
