Thank you very much for submitting your work. After careful consideration, the editors were not able to accept it for publication.
We would like to offer personalized letters or feedback but limitations of time and staff have made that impossible at the present. We wish you the best of luck in finding a journal to publish your writing. The editorial staff, including the editor-in-chief, Mark Jay Mirsky, welcomes critical response to past issues of the magazine if you wish to include any in future submissions or letters. If you identify yourself as a writer who submitted to Fiction, you may order back issues at a fifty percent discount.
With best regards,
Thank you for letting us see "++++." We very much enjoyed reading it. Despite its many fine qualities, in the end we felt that the piece was not right for Fiction.
The reasons for this are always varied. The editors may have disagreed or may have concluded that the story didn't work for them in its present form. We hope this encourages you to keep writing and submitting, as we'd be interested in seeing more of your fiction in the future.
Sincerely, The Editors
