Coaching Line Edit

Sample line-edit of 50 pages of manuscript with copious craft-focused notes.


The Coaching Line Edit is a two-pronged service that provides a high level stylistic edit of a 50-page (up to 12,500 words) sample of a manuscript, with in-text comments to explain the craft and technique behind the editorial changes. This not only provides you with a highly polished sample, but can help you learn to be a more effective self-editor.

Up to 12,500 words of manuscript text, carefully line-edited by your editor using Microsoft Word’s track changes feature so you can see what was cut, inserted, or modified, along with margin comments explaining why the change was made and what you need to know about the principle in question.

Included in the price is half an hour of phone or email consultation with the reviewing editor. This session gives you the opportunity to ask questions, clarify, and discuss technique or recommendations. Consultation beyond the time included with the Coaching Line Edit, if desired, is available at our standard rate of $75 per hour.


$750 and up.

Turnaround time for a Coaching Line Edit is typically 3-5  weeks.
