Beth Lee-De Amici

My twin passions in my work are clarity and precision, and I bring those passions to bear on every project I complete. I have an earned PhD, and as a published author of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction I have almost twenty years' experience creating and critiquing many different types of writing. I am familiar with Chicago Manual standards, and can handle projects from simple proofreading to the most in-depth substantive editing.

My work experience is wide ranging, including almost 10 years as a college professor, which involved working on my own publications and teaching courses that involved frequent evaluation of others' writing. I also have expanded my own versatility as a writer by taking courses in creative writing and screenwriting. Let me put that versatility and experience to work for you, helping you to create a text that is clean, precise, and engagingly written.

Work Terms

I generally work Mondays through Fridays during normal business hours. My standard rate for hourly work is $40 an hour. On a per-page basis for proofreading or copyediting I charge $3.00/page for the first 250 pages (double-spaced, 1" margins, 12-pt type, approx. 350 words/page) and $2.50/page thereafter. These terms can be negotiated. I am also open to taking fixed-price contracts, subject to negotiation of terms.
