Line editing strengthens the readability and impact of any project where a full-blown developmental edit isn’t necessary. Line editing focuses on the paragraph and sentence levels to improve your current project and show you how to raise your writing skills for the next project. Line editing examines the rhythm and flow of the words, weeds out passive construction, tightens or expands the work to its ideal length, and occasionally, perhaps, works magic.
If your current priority is to develop your writing craft and writing voice, line editing may be the right approach for you. If your current priority is clean, error-free copy, check out my Copyediting services.
