A Fine Rejection
This summer I’ve been submitting my nonfiction pieces that I wrote last semester in class. I’ve been wondering for several weeks now where I am at in their cue and what sort of response I’ll get, or not get. The first one arrived the other day and rejected my piece, but I was pleasantly surprised by the personalized reply.
“We appreciate your submission, but after reading it we have decided not to use it. However, we want you to know that we enjoyed your work and found it promising. Please feel encouraged by this email and take it as my personal invitation to submit your work to us again.”
Now, to polish up my next piece to send to them!
