Line Editing

What is Line Editing?

Line editing addresses the creative content of a manuscript, rather than mechanics like punctuation, grammar, factual correctness, and consistency. The line editor looks at the author’s use of language and offers advice to improve the readability of a manuscript. They will address issues like tonal inconsistencies, run-on sentences, poor dialogue, and other such things that may affect the reading experience.
