Dorothy Darrow offers low-cost editing services to independent writers. Her clients currently include authors, screenwriters, and poets. She accepts works in the following formats and genres:
Screenplays (long or short)
Plays (short, one act, and full-length)
Ms. Darrow is taking a break from proofreading and copy editing to focus on her own projects. She will return helping other independent authors in 2014. Please feel free to submit a form then.
FREE: simple proofreading to correct typos and simple grammatical errors.
$1 per 1000 words: for prose. Proofreading, as well as line edits and suggestions to help the overall narrative flow better and consistently. (Word count is rounded up to the nearest thousand. For example, a 50,010-word novel would be $51.)
50 cents per page: for screenplays and stageplays. Proofreading, as well as line edits and suggestions to help the overall narrative flow and maintain consistent voices for all characters.
