I am in need of a line editor to fulfill the following for an African American novel:
***Line editing. Also known as stylistic editing or medium editing. In addition to the tasks performed as part of copyediting, includes clarifying meaning; rewording jargon and awkward phrasing; eliminating wordiness; changing passive voice to active voice; flagging inappropriate, ambiguous, or incorrect statements; ensuring parallel structure; rearranging sentences within paragraphs; correcting inconsistencies in writing style and tone; and flagging discrepancies in plot, setting, and character traits.
The manuscript is 160 pages and 67,000 words.
There is a multitude of slang and so it is vital that the person applying for the job have this type of experience.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a copy of the manuscript. I have a 7 page sample and a 20 page sample.
Thanks in advance
