Greetings. Thanks for submitting, as well as for your patience in awaiting our reply. We, as a staff, spent time reading and discussing your submission, which delayed our response somewhat, but also allowed us to give it the attention it deserves. I'm sorry to say that after our discussion, we have decided not to accept your work for publication. However, there were quite a few favorable comments made, supporters of your work speaking up on its finer points. We do wish you the best of luck placing this elsewhere and hope you do try us again when you have something. Best, Brad Felver Fiction Editor

Higher Tier, personal note

Thanks for your submission to MAR, and for your patience in awaiting a response. This is a story I kept around so that my staff could discuss upon their return to campus this fall. While a lot of nice things were said, and the story had some support, I'm sorry to say that we are not accepting it for publication. We do wish you luck in placing it elsewhere, and hope you try us again in the future. Best, Michael Czyzniejewski, Editor
