Dear [x],

Thank you for taking the time to submit your work to us, and for your patience while we read it.

Unfortunately, we aren't able to accept this story for publication. Don't let this get you down, though. There are many possible reasons for turning down a story, and we regularly turn down great work just because it isn't quite right for us. (Due to time constraints, we're unable to discuss reasons for rejecting specific stories.)

We're committed to publishing a variety of fiction from both new and established writers, so please do submit to us again.

If you haven't yet read any of our anthologies, it's worth taking a look to see what we're all about. Our latest volume, 'And Nothing Remains', is available now. See our website for details: https://www.thefictiondesk.com/anthologies/#
