The novice I really am

I have a question and I know it's going to make me look an absolute novice but why not eh because that's what I am. I don't know the answer to this but I know that one of you will so I'd really appreciate the help.
I have a story that an editor has accepted "subject to the changes marked on the attached." The "attached" referred to is the story that I sent them. It has been returned with red marks on saying this word deleted or that word changed etc. My question is do I change the things marked and return it to them or will they do it?

It sounds to me that they want you to make the changes, Colette, although I agree it's ambiguous. I would either email or phone for clarification. Good luck!

I don't know, but I'd assume they'd change it. Maybe reply that you're happy for them to make the changes.

I'm a novice too. :)

I agree with Frances. Don't assume anything, novice or otherwise, ask for clarification.

Good news, anyway! x

I've had a problem with my email for the last couple of days so I haven't been able to retrieve the contact details but I'll be in touch with them tomorrow.
Yes it was good news. Well it cheered me up.
