"Pearl is a 96–160 page, perfect-bound magazine featuring poetry, short fiction, and black & white artwork."
Thank you for thinking of Pearl as a possible outlet for your fiction. Although we have all read your manuscript and given it careful consideration, we regret that it does not meet our current needs.
We would like to assure you, however, that this does not necessarily reflect the quality of your work, since the number of stories we publish is extremely limited. Thank you again for your interest and we wish you luck in placing your work elsewhere.
Marilyn Johnson, Fiction Editor
