Thank you very much for your story. We have read your submission, but are going to pass on this piece.
We receive hundreds of stories and carefully balance each issue for genre, subject, length, and tone, and unfortunately that sometimes means having to release quality work back into the literary wilds. We wish you well in finding a home for this story.
While we can't use your work at this time, we thank you for thinking of us and encourage you to submit again in the future.
Kind regards, ACQUISITIONS EDITOR
