Editing

Fine Line Edits improves business, technical, academic, and literary documents. We make revisions according to plain-language principles, consistently delivering straightforward and reader-friendly sentences.

Our company's name comes from line editing, which denotes massaging language and making improvements. Line editors give their clients original additions, suggested deletions, corrections of errors, and improvements on structure and tone. Feedback of this kind is also called stylistic editing, and we take care to work within each author’s unique style. You want a stronger voice, not a different voice!

While specializing in line editing, we also offer developmental editing for documents or speeches still in-progress. Additionally, clients can request copy editing: i.e., scanning final drafts for any errors in spelling or grammar.

Our editors address issues related to:

Style

Making sure your writing is lively

Clarity

Removing ambiguities, enhancing precision

Grammar

Ensuring the rules of written English are followed

Punctuation

Placing helpful signposts along a document’s pathways

Spelling

Catching errors that electronic spell-checkers will miss
