Line/Copy Editing Services

A line edit goes more in-depth than a simple PROOFREAD. Along with checking for spelling and grammar, a line edit will take a closer look at every line and individual paragraph in the manuscript, checking for: 

  • Sentence Structure
  • Punctuation
  • Spelling
  • Grammar
  • Word choice
  • Repetitiveness
  • Concision
  • Continuity
  • Clarity
  • POV (shifts, head-hopping)
  • Dialogue (consistent and appropriate dialogue tags
  • Fact checking

The Line/Copy Edit often requires a rewrite by the author. While we will be happy to take a second pass at the edits after you have made changes to the manuscript (at no extra charge), a PROOFREAD is strongly suggested after all rewrites are complete. But don't worry, we've got you covered with several proofreaders on our team.

For a full plot, character and theme analysis, check out our DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING service.
