Line edits are an essential style edit. Some editors refer to these as copy edits. Line edits primarily focus on your word choice, word usage, flow, pacing, and structure of your sentences. If you said the word tepid twice in three paragraphs, a line edit will catch it.
Changes are made in-text via Word’s Track Changes. Please send your manuscript as a Word or Google Doc, 12 pt, Times New Roman, 1” margins, double spaced.
If you have questions about our process or one of our editors, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
