What kind of responses will come back from an editor after a short story is accepted in an anthology? Specifically, is it common for a writer to hear that an accepted story has potential but needs significant editing before it's finally accepted? I've had a hard time finding any actual verbatim responses online.
While editing short stories in an anthology, these things are to be kept in mind :
1) Editor should clarify obscure allusions, giving information concerning events and persons named, clearing away difficulties to comprehension.
2)Apply such commentary that will help readers to appreciate.
