Thank you for your submission to Chestnut Review. Although we must decline your submission this time, we appreciated the chance to consider it. Please do not interpret this as a judgment of your art as a whole. Individual tastes matter a great deal in decisions like these, and though we have to decline this round, we encourage you to keep writing and creating. The world needs it, and you.
We'd also appreciate your reporting stats on Duotrope for this submission, if you use that site.
Thanks again. Best of luck with all your work. Sincerely, The Editors
