3) What are my payment options?

9) I am fairly confident in my writing skills, but I would like a second opinion. Would hire-a-writer.com still be suitable for me?

Absolutely. As professional writers and editors, we strongly encourage a second eye when editing. No matter how many times you may look at your project, you will likely miss something. Our editing service starts at just $35 per page. At hire-a-writer.com, we will help you prevent those embarrassing and unnecessary mistakes from appearing in print.

By charging an hourly rate, we can give your project the attention it deserves. With that said, we offer different levels of editing so that you can tell us exactly what to focus on. Also, before we begin a project we read through your document and provide a cost estimate so that there are no surprises!
