Line Editing

$0.032/ word



Line editing is a comprehensive style of editing that looks into how you, as an author, utilized language in conveying your story or message to your readers. More than just combing for technical oversights (such as punctuation, spelling, and grammar) line editing ensures the cohesion of context and checks if the sentences evoke the intended message you wanted to impart to your readers.

Line editing looks out for the following:

  • Perspective
  • Point of view
  • Character voice
  • Character development
  • Plot structure
  • Overall theme
  • Overall consistency
  • Overall weaknesses within the story


Line editing is about checking the composition of already-written sentences for issues like redundancy, dangling modifiers, unclear phrasing, inappropriate jargon, consistency in narration, and basic fact-checking.

Note: All editing services have a 5,000-word minimum charge. We advise you to submit your manuscript for a copyediting process after the structural editing process.

Line editing usually takes two to three weeks, depending on the company’s work backlogs and manuscript intricacy.
