Waylines Magazine: personal rejection

Dear Kalin,

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to consider XXXXX. We're afraid we will have to pass on this one.

We thought the story within a story idea worked well, but we did feel that the overall structural balance didn't quite work for us.

We hope you find a good home for this story. Thanks for the read, and good luck with your writing.

Sincerely,
Waylines Magazine

On Spec: form rejection 2

Dear Kalin

Thank you very much for letting us see your story. We appreciate your taking the time to send it in for our consideration. We regret to tell you it won't be a good fit for On Spec.

Although it does not suit the needs of the magazine at this time, we wish you luck with placing it elsewhere. We buy fewer than 5% of all the stories sent to us, so please send something new when we reopen to new submissions.

On Spec: personal rejection

Dear Kalin and Ilka,
Thank you very much for letting us see your story. We appreciate your taking the time to send it in for our consideration. We regret to tell you it won't be a good fit for On Spec. We are looking for stories that are more concrete. By the end of page 2 we are still not sure what is happening. It isn`t our style.

Although it does not suit the needs of the magazine at this time, we wish you luck with placing it elsewhere. We buy fewer than 5% of all the stories sent to us, so please send something new when we reopen to new submissions.

Thank you for sending us "What Will She Be?". We appreciate the chance to read it. That said, some very good work just doesn't fit our present needs. We're going to pass on this round, but we sincerely hope to read more of your submissions in the future. Keep writing!

Waylines Magazine: personal rejection

Dear Kalin,

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to consider XXXXX. We're afraid we will have to pass on this one.

This had some rich imagery, but we did feel that the pacing was not quite as balanced as we might have liked.

We hope you find a good home for this story. Thanks for the read, and good luck with your writing.

Just got the most shocking rejection in my life. Only two hours after I submitted the piece. And it is 4,000 words. And I like it.

Things like that can really make me question myself. Or lose faith.

... And how could I not like it? With a passage like this:

A day for strolls and shopping. A day for terrorism. A day off.


Just polishing the translation again. ;)

Wily Writers: form rejection

Dear Kalin,

Your story, XXXXX, was not chosen for publication at Wily Writers, but I thank you for submitting it. Since we only publish two stories a month, we often have to turn away very interesting stories.

I wish you the best of luck finding a home for it. Please, don't hesitate to submit with us in the future, if you find you have a story that fits one of our monthly themes.

Best regards,

Read Short Fiction: semi-personal rejection

Dear Kalin:

Thank you so much for reaching out to us with Mr. YYYYY's piece XXXXX. While we enjoyed it, we didn't feel that it is a match for Read Short Fiction.

Best wishes, and keep up your wonderful work with the Human Library Foundation.

We have read your submission, and unfortunately we are not able to use it in The Threepenny Review. Please do not take this as a comment on the quality of your writing; we receive so many submissions that we are able to accept only a small fraction of them.

Thank you for sending your work to us, and please accept our apologies for the automated message system. We wish we had time to reply to everyone individually.

Dear Kalin,

Thank you for your submission and your interest in Gigantic. Unfortunately, "Languages" didn't feel quite right for the anthology, but we wish you the best of luck placing it elsewhere. We are also sorry that the number of submissions we have received for Gigantic Worlds does not allow us to offer a more personal response.

Thank you for offering us the opportunity to review your work. We regret that we cannot publish your submission "Encounter of Fate," as it does not meet the magazine's current needs.

Please accept our apologies for this form letter, but the volume of submissions we receive makes it impossible to respond personally.

We wish you the best of luck in placing your work.

Hi Kalin!

Thanks again for submitting to Four Chambers! Sorry it's taken us a little while to get back to you regarding your submissions. This issue, we received over 900 submissions. Of these, we were only able to publish 6%. Regrettably, then, we are unable to publish your work.

Regardless, thank you so much for sharing your work with us, for even writing something in the first place, and helping us put together a first issue. Our submissions period re-opens on November 17th, and we look forward to reading more of your work soon.

Sincerely,

Dear Kalin,

Thank you for submitting XXXXX to us here at Inscription. Unfortunately, your story isn’t quite what we’re looking for right now. We received an incredible number of submissions, and we can only publish a few of them, which means that we have to pass on many wonderful stories. We hope you’ll try us again in future.

All the best,

Dear Kalin Nenov,

Thank you for sending me "Rondo for Death and a Hitman, Wannabe". I appreciate the chance to read it. Unfortunately, I have decided not to use your story. I wish you luck in submitting your story to other markets.

My best advice is to keep current on the stories that have been published on my blog. Knowing what has posted on the blog gives you an advantage over other authors. Check out the stories at http://tgenedavis.com/ . You can even subscribe to a free weekly reminder for new stories at http://tgenedavis.wordpress.com/#blog_subscription-2

The Suburban Review, form rejection

Dear Contributor,

We received over 150 submissions to Volume 3: Alien and I'm sorry to say that yours was not successful. Believe me, I know how you feel—I submitted my own work under an assumed name and even I didn't get into this volume. And I run the thing! Two other associate editors also submitted but didn't make the cut.

This doesn't mean we're bad writers, It just means this issue wasn't the right place for our work. I hope you'll submit again ( I know I will—I'll crack this bastard yet!)

-T.J. Robinson
Editor-in-chief


But in great form. ;)

The Bevel Summers Prize for the Short Short Story, form rejection

Dear Contestant:
Thank you for sending work to Shenandoah’s Bevel Summers contest. I’m sorry to report that your story (stories) was not selected as a finalist, but the process of elimination was challenging, and we found over fifty stories that might, at another time, have been right for us. Overall, we received over a thousand short short stories from 800 authors, and we’re happy to report that the state of this genre or sub-genre is robust and exciting. We’ll run the contest again next spring and try to iron out any glitches in the submission process. Thank you for helping to make this contest a success. Our website will announce the winner in late August.

Resurrection House, the XIII anthology: form rejection

Kalin,

Thanks for sending us this story. We really appreciate the opportunity to read some of YYYYY's work. However, it didn't quite hold our attention in the manner in which we had hoped, and we're going to pass on it for this project.

We appreciate your enthusiasm for Resurrection House, and hope that you'll consider us again when we have another project.

Best,

Dear Kalin Nenov,

Thank you for sending us "A Tale of Heroes and Villains" for consideration in New Voices. While our editors enjoyed reading your work, I’m afraid it isn’t quite right for us at this time.

We wanted to take this opportunity to apologize for the delay in our response, as we are currently catching up on submissions. We understand the process of sending out work is a long one. We are working hard to increase our response time. Should you submit to us in the future, we are happy to report we can offer responses much sooner.

We appreciate you sharing your work with us, and wish you the best of luck placing it elsewhere.

Warmly,
