In terms of editing, I offer three packages:

1. Basic Editing Package: This package is designed for term papers, at a maximum of 5,000 words. I ask that you send me a draft in Microsoft Word format, which I will edit for style and grammar only.

  • $4.50 CAD/double-spaced page.
  • $3.50 CAD/double-spaced page if you send it to me four days in advance. For each assignment, there will be a $5.00 CAD processing fee.

*Work cannot be guaranteed if submitted within 24 hours of the deadline

2. Dissertation Editing: This package is designed for undergraduate honours, master's, and PhD students. There is no maximum manuscript length. As above, please send me your dissertation in Word, which I will edit for style and grammar only. 

  • Starting at a flat rate of $150.00 CAD for 50 double-spaced pages. That's roughly $3.00 CAD/page. I will accommodate student budgets where I can. Keep in mind, I provide very thorough edits.

*Rates will vary depending on length and degree of completion. Email me your dissertation for a free assessment.

3. Paper Consultations: This is a forty-five-minute meeting over Skype or Google+. You will need to send me your paper in advance (as above), so that I can provide you with more detailed, critical feedback. The consultation not only gives you an opportunity to meet with me face to face, but also to discuss the broader thematic and structural aspects of your paper. NB If you are in your final year of undergrad, I can advise you on grad school applications, research proposals, and dissertations as part of your consultation.

  • $20.00 CAD flat rate, with the standard charge for preparatory edits (see Basic Editing Package).

*Please book your consultation 48 hours in advance, and cancel 24 hours in advance. There will be a $15.00 CAD cancellation charge.


Add-ons and One-offs

For a flat rate of $45.00 CAD, I will format your paper in LaTeX to look something like this:


Submission Guidelines

Please submit all papers double-spaced, size 12, Times New Roman font. Rates are by page, according to these parameters. You need not submit a completed paper or dissertation. I am happy to edit it in fragments. If you are living overseas, keep in mind that I am on Mountain Time and may be asleep when you email me . . . 

FAQS

When should I send you my paper? 
The sooner you contact me, the better. A week in advance for the basic editing package would be ideal; a month for the dissertation. These are not strict guidelines, however.

How does it work?
Everything is done online, both for your convenience and mine.

What do you get?
An elegant, grammatically-correct and cohesive paper, delivered to you in a timely manner. With or without the Oxford Comma.

How cheap is it?
It's cheaper if you submit early! I will reduce the cost to $3.50 CAD/double-spaced page, if I receive it four days in advance. I will accommodate student budgets where I can, especially for longer submissions such as dissertations. Some pieces are less demanding than others . . . email me a draft and I will give you an estimate, free of charge.

What if I don't live in Canada?
No problem! Everything is done online, plus you get the added bonus of a depreciated Canadian currency.

How can I ever thank you?!
I accept payments upfront, via PayPal or bank transfers sent to thecambridgecomma@gmail.com.

Will you edit my lab report?
I am comfortable editing papers for disciplines other than English.

Will you write my paper for me? Pleeeease?!
No, I will not write your paper for you. Rather, I will help you hone your writing style and become the editor of your own work. Even better! ;-)
