Narrative Magazine, form rejection 2

Dear Kalin Nenov (Human Library):

Thank you for sending your work to Narrative. We are always grateful for the opportunity to review new material, and we have given XXXXX close attention and careful consideration. We found many strengths to recommend your work and, overall, much to admire. We regret, however, that XXXXX is not quite right for us. We encourage you try us again in the future, and we hope that you will.

Sincerely,

The Editors

Journal of Compressed Creative Arts: form rejection (once again, very sweet :) )

Dear Kalin Nenov,

Thank you for sending us "Transcendance." Unfortunately, we didn't love it enough to send it to the next round of consideration. We at Matter Press worry that the quick "decline" might feel a bit "harsh" to writers. That certainly isn't the intention of the fast turnaround time and is no indication at all of the interest in your work. As I'm sure you know, so much of the submission process is about finding that right match, and that's what we hope for your submission: that it finds its perfect home.

Thanks again. Best of luck with "Transcendance."

Sincerely,



Randall Brown, Managing Editor

Grievous Angel/Urban Fantasist: form rejection

Hi Kalin

Many thanks of your submission but I’m afraid it has to be a “no” from me this time however it was an intriguing piece so please do send in more of your work at a later date. And apologies for taking so long to reply but we have been overwhelmed with submissions and it has taken me longer than anticipated to deal with them.

Regards

Dear Kalin,

Thank you for your submission of "A Tale of Heroes and Villains" to Fireside, but we've decided not to accept it for publication. Please forgive the form letter, but due to the high volume of submissions we can't respond personally on each story. We appreciate your interest in Fireside.

Young Explorer's Adventure Guide Series: form rejection

Thank you so much for submitting your story to the 2014 Young Explorer's Adventure Guide. When we started this project, we weren't sure what sort of response we'd be getting, and I must say, the number and quality of submissions has been astounding.

After discussion and consideration, we've decided that this story isn't a good fit for this anthology. However, because of the tremendous response, we're planning to do another anthology (possibly two!) next year. There's obviously a need for a market for speculative fiction for a younger audience.

Please feel free to submit again next year.

Also: The more we can spread the word among parents and fellow speculative fiction enthusiasts, the more likely we are to be able to keep the market open.

If you write speculative fiction for younger readers because you believe exposing kids to the genre early is a good thing for both the kids and the genre, please consider sharing the kickstarter for pre-orders:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/81 ... or-young-r

Best,

Sixpenny, form rejection (but kind :)):

Dear Kalin Nenov,

Thank you so much for your submission and sorry that it has taken us so long to respond. We really appreciate that you took a chance on our new magazine and submitted your work! We rely on stories like yours, since most of what we will publish is coming to us unsolicited. And we have been so grateful for the response we’ve received from people like you who’ve shown an interest in our magazine! We received over 300 story submissions and had to choose only three for the inaugural issue so the decision was tough! Unfortunately, we can't find a place for this piece right now. But please feel free to submit more work in the future! We will post information about our launch date and our next reading period soon.

Thank you so much again for your efforts and for letting us see your work!

All the best,

Elizabeth Leonard

Accessing the Future anthology, form rejection:

Dear Kalin,

Thanks again for sending your story “Loving Loney Lone” for
consideration in the Accessing the Future anthology. After some
consideration we have decided not to keep this piece for the final
lineup, and are therefore letting you know that we will not be
publishing it. This should of course not be taken as any judgement on
the quality of your work.

Thanks again for thinking of us with this story, and we'd like to wish
you the very best of success with your writing in future.

Best wishes,

Kathryn and Djibril

Urban Fantasy Magazine, personal rejection of "The Way That I Smile":

Kalin M. Nenov,

Thank you for your submission to Urban Fantasy Magazine. I regret to inform you that we are unable to use it at this time. Here is what our editorial assistants had to say about this story:

Vote: Reject

I'm afraid this is a "no" from me. I didn't quite follow the actions of the characters in this piece, and it read closer to poetry than prose. I like the idea of the back and forth between the two voices, though. Thanks for submitting.

-- Katrina S. Forest

Vote: Reject

I think there were some nice turns of phrase here but I don't think this piece suits the magazine. I suppose one can read it as experimental fiction but it sits like poetry on the page, which we don't publish unfortunately. And beyond that, ultimately I didn't feel enough of an emotional hook to the narrator to get invested in the story. I think a bit more background, no matter what form this tale eventually takes, would help sell the immediacy of the events here.

-- Nicholas Smith

Please do not resubmit a rejected story unless we specifically request you do so. We wish you good luck in placing the story elsewhere.

Great American Sentence Contest, form rejection:

Thank you for entering Easy Street’s Great American Sentence Contest.

The contest far exceeded our expectations in terms of numbers, and we certainly appreciate your patience as we read the over two thousand sentences you collectively sent our way. We congratulate the lucky few whose lines wowed our judges. This is not to say we didn’t have a lot of wow moments, the very nature of a contest means that we have to make hard decisions. Regardless of the outcome, we thank you for sending your work, and we encourage each and every one of you to keep submitting.

To view the winners, finalists, and honorable mentions, please head over to our website at http://www.easystreetmag.com. We hope you’ll join us again for future events.

Bahamut, personal rejection:

Dear Kalin--

Thank you for submitting Less than Two to Bahamut. There's some interesting writing here, but overall, the piece doesn't quite "explore identity in a global context" as our submission guidelines describe, so we're going to pass. We hope, however, that you will keep us in mind for future submissions.

Best,

-The Editors


Скрит текст: покажи
This one is curious. "Less than Two" explores identity--more specifically, transcending identities--in a global context--I don't think it can get any more global. ;) However, it's a convoluted text, so it's easy to miss the idea. Or interpret it differently.

Science Fiction/Chilling Ghost Short Stories, form rejection:

Dear YYYYY

Our call for submissions to our Ghosts, Horror and Science Fiction Anthologies produced over 720 entries so it's been very difficult to read and choose the stories. We've taken much longer to make a decision than we expected because we enjoyed every single story, and made final choices based on the mix of tales in the books, the presence of much older fiction and the story size limit (2000 to 4000 words).

I'm afraid yours didn't make the final cut. I'm sure you won't let this put you off and hope to see more from you in the future.

Very best wishes
Josie

Dear Kalin,

Thank you for sending "Do We Need Nature" to Orion.

Unfortunately, it was not selected to move forward. As you know, Orion publishes just six issues a year, which means that competition is stiff and very few pieces can make their way into the magazine.

Thanks for considering Orion as a home for your work.

Kalin M. Nenov,

Thank you for your submission to Urban Fantasy Magazine. I regret to inform you that we are unable to use it at this time. Here is what our editorial assistants had to say about this story:

Vote: Reject

I felt this was an ambitious piece, but overall the narrative structure (the stories within the story) didn't work for me. It was difficult to be drawn into the story because I wasn't sure who the protagonist was or what the stakes were from the beginning. The narration felt very distant. I'm passing, but thank you for submitting!
