Thank you for sending us "[Title]". We've given it careful consideration, but ultimately we've decided it's not quite right for The Brooklyn Review at this time.
As writers ourselves, we know it's never easy to receive this kind of message. Still, we're honored to have had the opportunity to read your work. Thank you for thinking of us. We hope you'll continue reading the Review and submitting pieces to us in the future.
Sincerely, Tom Kozlowski The Brooklyn Review
