We thank you for the opportunity to read your manuscript. Unfortunately, your work does not meet our needs at this time. Because we know how much effort went into this submission, we regret the use of this form. But the volume of manuscripts we receive makes a personal reply impossible.

Same text as standard, with a handwritten "Many thanks. Hope you'll send more."

Not sure if this is personal or form:

Thank you for the opportunity to consider your work. Although in the end we have decided that "The [Exploding] Arm" does not meet our needs at this time, please know your work was seriously considered. We sincerely hope you will continue to send more our way.

Many Thanks,

Dear First Last,

We'd like to thank you, sincerely, for giving us the opportunity to read your work. Though it doesn't meet our needs at this time, we're so thankful for it; now more than ever, the arts feel as necessary as they are fragile, and it's up to each of us to keep them going.

For the foreseeable future, we'll only be accepting submissions via Submittable. Information regarding open submission reading periods will be posted on our website in late summer.

Wishing you safe and well, all our best, The Editors Alaska Quarterly Review
