AU Academic Writing Services (by the hour)

You've worked hard, and your work deserves another pair of  eyes to ensure its success. WEX Editors have the expertise to refine your prose, correct your format, and ensure that your document succeeds. We provide all excellent services at a reasonable $35 per-hour rate. 

Services can include:

  • Editing for content to provide feedback on writing elements such as organization, clarity of content, specificity of research  design and methods, sentence-level revisions, and word choice. This is best done before the document is complete.
  • Proofreading to correct typos, grammar and punctuation, wrong words, and other minor errors at the sentence level. This is best      done on a completed paper when major revisions are no longer likely.
  • Format/Style Editing to adjust the formatting of your document according to a specific format and style sheet. This format editing is best accomplished with a final draft of the manuscript. You are  expected to have all content, including in-text citations, in place before  requesting this service. 
  • Combined Proofreading and Format Editing: a manuscript benefits from a complete examination of format and proofreading to ensure that what is submitted is a polished      finalized text. 

Pricing and Payments. Regardless of the services requested, all are charged at the $35 hourly rate. 

  • All WEX services are on a prepaid basis. Payment must be received before services will rendered. 
  • Documents longer than 10 pages require a $70 deposit, which represents two hours of work at $35/hour. 
  • Documents fewer than 10 pages require a $35 deposit. 
  • Clients understand that the deposit is to initiate the editing transaction and that they are responsible for full payment of the contracted work, understanding that documents can consume more than the deposited amount. 
  • Once completed and fully paid, reviews will be returned via email and attached to the submission in Submittable. 
  • In the event that a project takes less time than expected, you will be issued a credit balance that may be applied to future WEX services. Please note that that WEX does not offer refunds for proofreading, editing, or coaching services 

These services are available at the lower rate to Antioch students and alumni only.
