Jane will work on selected projects* for the following rates:

Discounts are available on larger projects, which will be billed at a flat rate per word.

*Selected projects

Why do I say “selected” projects? I believe the best work is produced when both the client and the writer/editor feel passionately about the subject. If you’ve read my “About” page, you know quite a bit about what I feel passionate about.

In particular, I’d love to be your editor in the following areas:

Creative writing, especially literary fiction, science fiction, fantasy, futurism, and children’s stories.

Non-fiction, especially memoirs, chronic illness awareness, yoga, and science writing that is fresh and relevant – especially in the physical and earth/ocean sciences.

Note that I will not write anything toward the fulfilment of an educational qualification, such as a thesis or school essay. With your supervisor’s approval, I can help to edit papers for students and scientists for whom English is a second language.


Please contact me to obtain a specific quote for your project. As an editor, I will ask to see a 1000 word sample of your work, to make sure we are the right fit for each other. This also helps me to gauge whether you need basic copy editing, or more substantive or developmental editing.

I look forward to hearing from you!
