The Nottingham Review
Thank you for providing the opportunity to read '---'.
After careful consideration we have decided not to accept this for publication.
Regretfully, the volume of submissions we receive does not allow us to send a personal response every time. This is one such non-personal response.
Reasons for passing on a submission can vary greatly, and I know that phrases like 'This didn't work for us' or 'This isn't a good fit' are unhelpful. Sometimes, however good the writing is, a story just doesn't grab the editors enough to want to publish it under the name of their publication.
We consider it a privilege that you thought of submitting your work to us, and we wish you the best of luck placing this elsewhere.
