Rejection Letter #29

bya Gabrielle at 1:10 AM

I almost have the same amount of rejection letters as I am old.  Just two to go.  Nearly three.

I received this one two days ago.  Honestly, it didn’t bother me.  I had given up on it a long, long time ago.  I submitted “Jenny Kissed Me” to The Lifted Brow on December 1oth, 2012.  I had queried, too, in June or July, I can’t remember, but this was the first I had heard from them.  I’m not entirely sure what took them so long.  From what I can tell, I don’t think they were reading any submissions for the last several months, and thus were rejecting no one, including little ole’ me, until just recently.   I’m just glad that they let me know, even if it did take close to a year.  And they were polite and apologized for that.  If I ever write another story that I think they’ll like, I’ll give them another go.

Onward and upward, as they say . . .

Rejection Letter #29 – The Lifted Brow

Dear Gabrielle,

Sincerest apologies for the delayed response.

Thank you very much for your fiction submission to The Lifted Brow. It means a lot to us that you think of the Brow as somewhere you’d like to see your work published.

Unfortunately we’re not able to use your work in the magazine in this instance.

Reading the magazine is the best way to figure out what kind of fiction we like to publish, so if you’re not a subscriber, maybe have a think about becoming one.

Thanks again for taking the time to submit.
