Fairy Tale Review
Thank you for sending us "Title". We appreciate the opportunity to read it, but unfortunately the piece is not for us. Rest assured that your work received careful consideration, even though a small staff and many submissions necessitates form letters like this one.
Selecting work for an issue will always be a difficult and imperfect task—we receive so many intriguing submissions but are unable to publish a vast majority of them. We've always liked to say that we don't have a "slush pile." We just have “a lot of fairy tales to read.” Regardless of our decision here, we are honored by your commitment to the contemporary fairy tale.
Thanks again and best of luck with this.
