Literary Lingo

It’s time for some Literary Lingo.

Today’s word is: Line Editor

Person who performs an edit that is heavier than a typical copyedit and who considers a book’s voice, tone and phrasing. Fiction line editing considers the story’s pacing, character development, handling of details and vocabulary of the period and place where the novel is set and the naturalness and effectiveness of dialogue. A line editor also focuses on correcting errors in grammar, punctuation and writing style.
