Dear Name, It is with regret that I must inform you of our inability to accept your submission for publication in RipRap. Please understand that this decision is not a judgment of your artistic capabilities; rather, we are ardent supporters of all aspiring writers, but we simply do not have the space to print the vast multitude of work that we would like to acknowledge and showcase. Despite our declination, it is still my greatest hope that you will continue to develop your art and strive to get it published. All the best in your future endeavors, Eric
