We Know How Much It Means To You To Make It As a Writer

As creatives just like you, we’re a team of professional screenwriters who understand that your script is your baby. This means our Line Edit service isn’t about tearing up what you have on the page but refining it.

With our Line Edit service, a pro screenwriter of your choice will go through your script and edit the dialogue and description directly on the page, making it a cleaner, meaner, faster read.

Choose a Pro Screenwriter
to Perform Your Line Edit

As working screenwriters and creatives just like you, we know how badly you want to get your stories out into the world. But we also know that in order for this to happen, you need to be able to tell them concisely and, on the page itself, with laser-like precision.

Pick one of our pro screenwriters to go through every single line of description and dialogue in your script, with edits made directly on the page, to achieve the most economical and professional read possible.

While choosing a genre expert isn’t as essential for a Line Edit as, say, Margin Notes, you’re still welcome to choose the writer you’d most like to do the work from the list below.

To find out more about each of our genre specialists, check out our About Us page.

Answers to Some Frequently Asked Questions

You’ll probably find the answer to any question you may have about our Line Edit service below, but if not you can find more answers in our knowledge base.

Q1. What’s the difference between a Line Edit and a rewrite or polish? With a Line Edit, we’ll cut and rearrange, but won’t extensively rewrite or polish your existing work. Our Script Doctoring service is a more extensive edit in which the reader brings their own interpretation to the material and makes much more significant changes.

Q2. What the difference between a Line Edit and Margin Notes? A Line Edit differs from Margin Notes in that no story recommendations are given with a Line Edit—only description and dialogue edits are made on the page. With Margin Notes, no description and dialogue edits are made on the page—only story notes are made on the page.

Q3. Does a Line Edit include a Proofread/Formatting service? Yes. As part of a Line Edit, we’ll also flag up all grammatical errors and formatting quirks.

Q4. When will I get my Line Edit back? The turnaround time is approximately 14 days. If you order a 2-Day Rush or 5-Day Rush, though, you’ll get your screenplay coverage back within that timeframe.

Q5. My script is over 125 pages. Is this the same price? If your script is over 125 pages, please email us, quoting the page count, and that you’re looking to purchase extra pages for a Line Edit. We’ll then get back to you with a customized button with each extra page charged at $2. 

Q6. What format should I send in my screenplay to you? Please attach your script as an editable file, such as Final Draft, Movie Magic, Fade In, WriterDuet, etc. Please contact us first if you have a script written using a non-professional format, such as MS Word. 

Q7. How do I pick my preferred script reader? When you purchase the Line Edit, you’ll be asked to fill out a form after checkout which asks who you’d like to review your script. Nine times out of ten we’ll be able to assign the script to your preferred first or second choice reader. In the rare instance neither are available, we’ll email you with other options.

Q8. Can I send the reader other things along with my script? We don’t pass anything on to the reader other than the screenplay, such as treatments, character breakdowns, research notes or photos. However, if you’d like us to read something extra, please choose from one of our script coverage services. Thanks for understanding 🙂
