Quoting a writing project requires understanding several variables — including the subject matter, the internal support available, and the purpose of the text. Therefore, I price by spec only.

However, in the interest of saving time, I have put together a ballpark rates card to give some very general pricing information for projects including articles, e-books, white papers, and speeches.

Per my standard terms all rates:

  • Include one round of revisions
  • Include 30 minutes of meetings (Zoom/telephone). Further meetings, and in-person meetings are billed hourly.
