Who is this bundle for?

This bundle does what it says on the tin. A clunky sentence in a novel is forgotten by the end of the chapter. Short stories aren't quite as forgiving. If you're preparing a short story, or a batch of short stories, for submissions windows then this bundle is for you.

Line editing looks are the pace, rhythm and rhetorical devices of each of your sentences. It helps you cut lines that are distracting and expand on the strong ideas. We look at what is motif and what is just repetition. We sharpen the point of view and narration. We critique what stylistic choices make up your unique authorial voice.

Typing errors and grammatical mistakes could distract the submissions editor from how the brilliance of your short story. There's no worse feeling than spotting an obvious typo just seconds after you've sent off your work. A copyedit will rid your short story of these embarrassing slipups!
