Submit Your Stuff

When you send a submission to Run It By Fred, we see you as a person, not a faceless client or order number. Personal interaction has always been an essential part of my work, whether it entails searching out and hiring a freelance writer, an expert in a certain field as an advisor and fact-checker, or an editorial or photographic researcher.

Here’s how to proceed:

Step 1: The Send

E-mail your submission in Microsoft Word (.doc), Plain Text (.txt), Rich Text Format (.rtf), iWork (.pages) or pdf to submit@runitbyfred.com. At the same time, fill in the order form below and click Send. We’ll respond to confirm we’ve received it and assign you a customer code number, which you’ll need each time you make use of our services.

Your message

We will discuss your piece of writing with you via phone or e-mail (talk@runitbyfred.com), touching on …

  • The audience you intend to reach (an IT shop, say, or a graduate school thesis committee) and, in turn, the finished product’s degree of formality
  • The level of service appropriate for your submission (sometimes less, sometimes more)
  • Your preference for viewing changes by way of 1) electronic tracking in the document you submit or 2) non-tracked cross-outs and highlighting, as shown below.

Step 3: The Payment

We tally the cost of the job based on word count and turnaround time, as shown in What We Charge chart in the Services + Rates page. Once we know you agree to the fee, payment is due. We accept credit cards through PayPal, but you needn’t have a PayPal account to pay by card. Alternatively, you may send a personal check to the address below.

Step 4: The Review (?)

Once we complete a major edit or a rewrite, we e-mail it to you for a quick review. If you question any changes, we’ll work together to tweak the piece as necessary before it goes back into your hands for good. (Note: Reviews are not applicable to proofread-only jobs).
