Line Editing

Line-by-line editing focused on clarity and flow. For complete drafts that are in good shape in terms of structure & argument but that need tightening or shaping to effectively communicate your points to the reader.

  • Revising sentences & paragraphs to clarify meaning and ensure logical connections

  • Improve readability by addressing issues such as over-quoting and missing transitions

  • Querying unclear concepts or claims

  • Tightening prose to eliminate wordiness and (when requested) to reach target word lengths

  • Ensuring that thesis and other arguments are stated clearly
