Will Fenstermaker
I’m available to edit a variety of projects, including essays, articles, interviews, artist statements, websites and more. Please see my rate sheet, below, and get in touch︎︎︎.

Content Editing

Editing on the level of ideas: crafting a thesis, structuring arguments, developing a rhetorical style. Generally requires conversation or trading manuscripts back and forth. Minimum 2 hours.
$55 / hour

Copy Editing

Editing on the level of language: tightening prose, checking cross-references, querying confusing passages. Work is often delivered via a single edited manuscript. Minimum 1 hour.
$45 / hour


Projects requiring fast turnarounds may be billed at higher rates. Generally this encompasses deadlines within two weeks of beginning the project, but ultimately it depends on the amount of labor, the timeframe and my general availability.

Work begins only after we have agreed, in writing, on a project rate. Estimates are on request. Invoices are prorated per half hour. Unless agreed otherwise, payment is due net 30 with 5% late fees assessed monthly.
