Rejection notes – no.29 in a series
Throwing this one open to comment. Now, last Friday I received this email (incriminating information removed):
Submissions Editor, […]
By this point in my career, I’ve had enough experience to know not to get too excited when receiving emails like this, but even so, I think the follow-up, a couple of days later, was pretty poor.
Sure, it’s their magazine, they can publish whatever they want, but I think, after the first email, a little more by way of explanation in the second would not have been out of place – even it was only to say that they’ve run similar stories or they’re moving the magazine in a different direction.
What do you think? Am I being over sensitive or is this just another example of the lack of regard in which writers are held?
