What is the Line-Editing Laboratory?

The Self-Editing Masterclass for Authors.

Editing your own stories and books can be a frustrating and confusing experience for any author. What should you keep? What should you remove? Is that chapter truly in the best possible shape? Do those words really need to be there in order to tell your story properly?

With the Line-Editing Laboratory, the team behind the AutoCrit editing platform will take you on a voyage of discovery and help turn those essential edits into a more understandable and streamlined process.

A masterclass in editing mindset and how to put that mindset to the best possible use, the lab takes place in a friendly group environment with one common goal: to give you the skills you need to more quickly produce cleaner books to a publishable standard.

Interactive. Immersive. Invaluable.

Throughout a 10-day program, you’ll be treated to live group workshops with the AutoCrit team as we help you gain clarity on the most important concepts you’ll need to tackle when editing your own books before publication.

See how to pinpoint the “big wins” in any editing session, and discover when to keep going with your efforts, and when it’s best to call it a day and let your work breathe. Preserve your voice as an author while knowing you’ve made your work as captivating, clear, and accessible as it needs to be.

With a cleaner, more polished manuscript under your belt, you’ll also stand to save both money and time spent waiting for your human editor to finish their checks before you go to print. Winning!

Our live workshops take place twice a day throughout the lab period, at 11 am and 8 pm EST – just pick whichever time works for you.

And don’t worry if life gets in the way – all sessions are recorded so you can catch up easily.
