"There is no great writing, only great rewriting." 

—Louis D. Brandeis

Line Editing

If your book has been beta-read, workshopped, and critiqued, line editing is the next step in the process! This service focuses on improving paragraph and sentence flow, as well as readability. Are your readers' five senses being ignited? Does the dialogue truly reflect the culture and age group you’re portraying? Are certain sentences phrased awkwardly? Do parts of the writing take the reader out of the story? The purpose of line editing is to improve the overall style of your writing.
