Stylistic editing addresses creative content, writing style and language. This type of editing is performed at the paragraph and sentence level.
Once your written work has been edited to enhance organization and overall flow, it is ready for stylistic editing.
Stylistic editing will
- ensure smooth transitions between ideas,
- preserve mood and tone,
- clarify meaning,
- eliminate jargon and cliches,
- improve word choice,
- create engaging/entertaining material.
Although this stage of editing is called stylistic, rest assured that great care is taken to ensure your voice and writing style are maintained.
