Pricing: Copy Editing and Writing Services

PRICE VARIES

Eagle Online Services provides two types of writing assistance: nonfiction/expository writing and fiction/creative writing.

As with most consulting businesses, the costs for our services are based on an hourly rate that depends on the level of expertise required, which varies according to the service sought.  The higher the expertise, the higher the hourly rate.  And the more hours involved, the higher the total cost.

NEGOTIATED IN ADVANCE (including free advance evaluation)

Fees are negotiated in advance and mutually agreed upon.  To arrive at the cost, we first determine and agree upon the nature of the service to be provided, the level of expertise required, and the projected amount of time.  The final amount may be based on actual hours spent on a project, or on a set fee arrived at in advance based upon a mutually agreed upon time commitment.

All fees are consistent with those charged by others in the field and they generally follow guidelines provided by any applicable associations or organizations.

The rates provided below should only be used as rough guidelines, because rates vary considerably depending on the nature of the work, the time frame of the assignment, the degree of special expertise required, and other factors.

As stated above, all rates are negotiated in advance on the basis of a discussion of the work to be done.  

 

The rates below apply to both fiction and nonfiction writing.
