Rejection Letter #34

I guess that part about me saying you wouldn’t hear from me for a while was a lie.  I took this rejection harder than most, but tomorrow is another day.  Three other literary magazines have this piece.  Maybe one of them will bite.

Rejection Letter #34 – McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern

Dear Gabrielle,

Thank you for sending us “Jenny of Lebanon.” We rely on submissions like yours, since a good portion of what we publish comes to us unsolicited. Unfortunately, we can’t find a place for this piece in our next few issues. But please feel free to submit again in the future. Our tastes and needs continuously change.

Thanks again for your efforts, and for letting us see your work.
