Clients interested in retaining Wise Owl Wordsmithing on an ongoing basis for regular small projects, such as memos, newsletters, web content, etc., should contact Marianne directly to discuss a contract and invoicing options that meet your needs.

*Students may benefit from coaching sessions about the academic writing process, or editing services that are specific to student documents. Wise Owl will never write a student’s paper, thesis, or dissertation. 

Invest In Your Success

Document services are generally billed at an hourly rate (tracked to the quarter-hour after the first hour); however, some projects are charged a flat fee. Payment can be made via e-transfer or Square (for Visa, Mastercard, or American Express). Please discuss any alternative methods of payment before work commences.


Wise Owl Wordsmithing respects the confidentiality of research, business or organizational information, and original creative work. Client work and personal information (name, address, email, number, etc.) will never be made available to a third party without the written authorization of the client. Upon request, a confidentiality agreement can be signed before you submit your work.

Academic Integrity

Wise Owl Wordsmithing will not write essays for student clients. The goal is to assist students in the educational process to effectively communicate their own ideas by identifying opportunities to enhance and improve their written work. Clients are responsible for ensuring the accuracy and validity of their data, research, and interpretations. When referencing information from an outside source, the client must acknowledge the actual source from which the information was obtained and original quotes must be denoted as such. All references must be cited appropriately and in accordance with the style guide applicable to the work in question.  Plagiarism is unacceptable, and Wise Owl Wordsmithing does not endorse the usurpation of another’s effort. 

How Do I Know If It’s Right For Me?

My objective is to offer clients the services they need to achieve their goals. Whether it’s for personal, professional, or academic reasons, Wise Owl services always begin with a conversation so I can learn more about your project and we can decide on the best course of action.  If my services or schedule are not compatable with your projects, goals, or timeline, I will let you know. I will never sell you services you don’t need, nor those I am unable to deliver effectively in a timely manner.
