Request an estimate …

If you would like an estimate for Libby’s editing services, fill in the form below, and she will be in touch.

Please note that while Libby can provide firm quotes for manuscript critiques, she can only give estimates for line editing, copyediting and proofreading based on her hourly rate, average editing speed and the project’s word count. Manuscripts vary widely in their complexity and the level of intervention needed, and so Libby will invoice each client for the time she spends on their individual project.

See her Privacy Policy for details about how your information is stored and handled.
