What is Line Editing?

Professional line editing is a meticulous process involving stylistic editing to address a manuscript’s high-level structural, organizational, and content concerns. Line editing services focus on refining the overall quality of writing by offering suggestions to enhance tone and organization. While it includes spelling, grammar, and punctuation assessments, professional line editing is distinct in that it doesn’t exclusively concentrate on these mechanical details. Instead, it provides a holistic approach to elevate the coherence, clarity, and effectiveness of the writing, while also looking at things like point of view, characterization, and the flow of the plot. This process ensures the final product is a polished and refined version of the author’s original work.
