Editing “The wrong plane”

Editorially co-founder and STET editor Mandy Brown worked with Robin Sloan to edit The Wrong Plane. Here she asks a few questions about the writing process, the size and scope of an edit, and the vocabulary of bird collisions. Robin’s analogy of chassis and paint with regard to the depth of an edit neatly describes the difference between a structural (or developmental) edit and a line edit (which took place here). —Ed.
