What is Copyediting?
Copyediting is the process of going through your manuscript and finding all the grammatical and content errors.
We will lovingly inspect your manuscript and send you an interactive document with notes and suggestions on how to correct all of your mistakes. During your scheduled editing time, we will also do a once over for any response and/or questions you write to us on the interactive document. For manuscripts that need help with plot, pacing, and character arcs, we suggest Novel Coaching first.
15,000-25,000 Words starting at $900*
25,001-50,000 Words starting at $1,200*
50,001-100,000 Words starting at $1,500*
We offer light, medium, and heavy copyediting.
For proper pricing, please send an email with the type of service you would like and the first 2,500 words of your manuscript in .docx or .pdf format to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Estimate Inquiry” along with your name. We will give you options and pricing based on your sample. All editing projects require 25% deposit one week after agreeing upon a scheduled date for the manuscript to be turned into our editor.
* Prices listed above are for standard manuscripts. If we feel that your project will require more attention and time than these prices include, we will email you with options and suggestions.
Note: If you have scheduled an appointment for your manuscript to be edited, please be aware that we must have it on the agreed-upon date. We need at least four weeks to process each manuscript, depending on its length, and a back-log will affect other clients. Late manuscripts will incur a $150 late fee or will be subject to cancelation at which point Literary Symmetry will retain the 25% deposit.
