The main difference is that both a Rewrite and a Polish are custom-made services, executed by one of our writers to your exact brief. A Line Edit is a predetermined service that focuses solely on tightening up the dialogue and description.

To go a little deeper, a Rewrite is a more extensive service in which the reader brings their own interpretation to the material. It involves more significant changes on a broader scale. For example, to the story, characters and scenes.

A Polish, on the other hand, is kind of in-between a Rewrite and a Line Edit. Your chosen pro may tighten up the dialogue and description, as in a Line Edit, but also add their own suggestions in order to, say, “polish” a scene and make it “come alive” a bit more.
