Poetry rejections

Standard

Dear Writer, Thank you for submitting your work to Room magazine. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept it for publication at this time. Members of Room’s collective read more than 700 submissions of poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction each year, of which about 10% are accepted for publication. As you can imagine, we have to make some very tough choices. All manuscripts are read for quality, and about 30% are then passed on for further consideration. Each issue of Room is edited by a different collective member, and each issue editor is responsible for choosing manuscripts that most closely match her issue in theme and feeling. Please feel free to visit www.roommagazine.com from time to time to find out which themes might be under consideration. Again, thanks for sending your work to us—and best wishes in your literary pursuits. The Growing Room Collective

Dear [First and Last Name], Thank you for submitting your Fiction to Room magazine. While we are unable to accept [Submission Title] for publication, we would very much like to see more of your work. Members of Room’s collective read over 1200 submissions of poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction each year, of which less than 2% are accepted for publication. As you can imagine, we have to make some very tough choices. Each issue of Room is edited by a different collective member, and each issue editor is responsible for choosing manuscripts that most closely match her issue in theme and feeling. Your submission was one of very few that gets passed on by our readers to an issue editor. We really liked it, but were ultimately unable to use it in one of our upcoming issues. Please be sure to send us more of your writing. You can find out what themes might be under consideration by visiting our website, http://roommagazine.com. We look forward to reading more of your work.
