The cost of essay editing varies according to the length of the paper and the writing skill of the student. After I receive your paper I review it and, before I start editing it, I tell you the price I will charge. When you accept it, I begin work and, come what may, that price will not change.
Editing is charged by the word, based around $35.00 per thousand words, although there could be an adjustment for difficult writing, plus GST.
When I assess your paper I skim through it, looking for difficulties. I ignore spelling, punctuation and minor grammatical errors, as those are quickly fixed. The difficult errors obscure your meaning and for those I must reflect on what's being said, research the topic on the internet or ask you about it. Sometimes, I come back to the passage after editing the rest of the paper, and by then I understand the topic enough to repair the writing.
I estimate how much work is required in the difficult passages and set a price accordingly, which will not change — no matter how wrong my estimate was!
Today’s public figures can no longer write their own speeches or books, and there is some evidence that they can’t read them either.
–Gore Vidal (1925– )
