Rejection Notes – no.6 in a series

Sometimes, a good rejection can be almost as good as an acceptance. Editors, take note.

Dear Edoardo,

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to consider your story, “Immortal Longings.” After reading and discussing it, and then holding it for further consideration, we’ve decided to pass on it. It’s a charming read, but it will go right over the heads of our readers, as it did for half our editorial board.

Good luck placing this one elsewhere.

Rejection Notes – No.5 in a series

Dear Edoardo,

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to consider your story, “Through the Dart.” After reading and discussing it, we have decided that it does not work for us. Good luck placing it elsewhere.

To tell the truth, we’re just plain getting tired of seeing vampire stories. Even clever and original ones, like yours.

Not this one, but definitely, we’d like to see more stories from you.

Rejection Notes – No.4 in a series

Dear Edoardo Albert,

Thank you for sending us “The Dream of the Night-Shift Power Worker”. Unfortunately we will not be able to use this work. We receive many well-written, compelling, stories, but can only take a very limited number due to constraints of space and style. We wish you the best of luck in placing your story elsewhere.

P.S. It was a pretty good story. Sorry to say no. This is not our customary rejection.

Rejection Notes – No.3 in a series

Unfortunately, while we liked your submission, so far we have not found a place for it … and it is against our policy to hold onto a story indefinitely. Much as we’d like to, we just don’t have the room to print all the stories we get — not even all the good ones. So sadly, I’m going to have to very reluctantly let this one go.

If it got this far, you can rest assured that your story is of high quality and you should be able to find a home for it. I look forward to hearing from you again.

Better luck next time!
