Thanks for submitting to Lammergeier. Unfortunately, we decided not to take this piece. However, as writers ourselves, we understand how much time and effort goes into the submission process, and we appreciate your trust in our publication. We wish you the best in all your writing endeavors.
Thanks so much for sending us work for our [season] issue. Unfortunately, this particular packet wasn't a good fit for us at this time. We wish you the best of luck in placing these poems elsewhere and hope you'll continue to keep us in mind.
