What do proofreaders charge?


Do proofreaders usually charge by the word, by the page, or by the hour? Is there a different rate for light, medium, or heavy editing. Some writers just need someone to do a quick proof, but other writers need some major editing overhauls. Thanks for your input.

    That does help. Is there any difference in cost per word if the text needs heavy vs. light editing?
