Rejection I got today

Posted on


Hi, Daniel  —

I like the style here — and no doubt these poems will find suitable homes in short order.

But, alas, not for ______ just now.

Clearly, you can write!

Honored that you thought enough of us to send.

Much good fortune with these!

    Those are my favorite kind of rejections.
    I’m linking to your wordpress on my tumblr – I hope that is okay.

  2. Tip: Either frame that, or send another lot of poems in under a different name to see whether they send the same kiss-off.

    I know, I know, I’m a damnable cynic. It comes of being an editor. 😉
