Line Edit

Agents and publishers are looking for voices that stand out in the saturated world of literature. Line edits help chisel off the excess words that muffle your voice and keep you from making the publishing cut!

A line edit makes an author's words shine. It involves the following:

  • Condensing wordy sentences

  • Replacing stale, overused words and expressions with fresh, original language

  • Adjusting paragraphs for clarity, cohesion, and style

  • Correcting grammar and punctuation

  • Formatting according to industry standards

  • Accentuating author's voice
