Thank you for sharing your work with American Chordata. We considered your submission "—" carefully, but ultimately we could not find a place for your work in this issue. We do hope you'll keep us in mind for the future!
Our apologies for being a bit slow in getting back to you about this. We are a small team, and we've been humbled by a large volume of submissions, but we're very glad to have had the opportunity to spend time with your words.
With warm regards, and all best wishes,
