Professional Editing & Proofreading Services

Our pricing varies widely from project to project as we look at each manuscript individually, tailoring our services to meet a client's unique needs. We're also sensitive to the individual requirements and budgets of self-publishing authors and independent publishers. The following rates are intended as a guideline only, and are based on the industry minimum rates suggested by the SfEP. Also, bear in mind that projects involving two or more services will be subject to a significant discount.

You can also find our standard Terms & Conditions here.

"I want to say thank you to Momus Editorial for the efficient way you have copy-edited several items of my work. It has been a pleasure to get such a quick response and very accurate proofing...
