I offer one-on-one coaching, editing, and critique services for writers of fiction and nonfiction, both shorter pieces and book-length projects. There are two standard packages, one for critique and one for coaching.
If you wanted feedback on work you’ve already written, the cost for critique services is $150 for the first 20 pages and $5 per additional page. In return, you would receive line editing for the complete manuscript plus your choice of a critique (500-2000 words, depending on the length of the manuscript, outlining what’s successful and what can be improved) or a one-hour in-person meeting. The industry standard of 250 words per page is used to calculate the final cost.
For clients who want more of a coaching experience, I offer a ten-session package for $900. You and I would meet five times for one hour in person or on the phone to discuss strategy, revision, outlining, etc., and you would receive feedback five times via email on up to 2000 words (or another mutually agreed upon arrangement). A single one-hour consultation is $100.
If you’re looking for help that doesn’t fit these parameters, e.g., you want help finding a place to submit a short story or you just need a document proofread, I can work with you to customize some assistance. For more information, please visit chrisdaley.com or email chrisdaleyWD@gmail.com.
I will also have classes available in the future.
