Lola and Calliope: Under Construction

The hand of the editor in published writing is often invisible – but any writer will tell you a good editor is invaluable. So what do they actually do? In partnership with Seizure, we pull back the curtain on the editorial process to show you what goes on. How do writers and editors use track-changes to communicate their ideas for a piece? What takes place in the comments? And how do they work together to make a final version they can both be proud of?

From November 7, editor Alice Grundy and writer Elizabeth Tan show us a story through several stages of track changes. See where Lola and Calliope started, how it shifted, and then go to to see where it ended up.
