Thank you for sending us your brief essay 'TITLE'. This one came very close, up to the final round of decision making, in fact, but we've decided to pass. I don't know if that makes you feel good or if such 'close but no cigar' news is just hard to hear, but we have been blessed with a large number of excellent submissions lately, and hope that you understand that we can only publish a small fraction of the material we receive. We hope that you will consider us again. Good luck with your writing, The Editors
