Dear —,

Thank you for sending us "—." We appreciate the chance to read your work. While there's a lot to like here, this isn't quite right for The Citron Review. We receive hundreds of submissions per month, so competition is high. While we didn't select your piece, that only means it doesn't work for us in our upcoming issues. We sincerely hope you find a better fit elsewhere.

Because of our publishing backlog, please think of us again after waiting at least a month. We'd really like to see more from you.

Thanks again. Best of luck.

Sincerely,

Heather Luby, Editor
