Thank you for giving me the opportunity to read "——." Unfortunately we will have to pass on this one as it's not quite what we're looking for. The story's premise is interesting, but I did note uneven prose. We wish you the best placing your work. We appreciate your interest in The Washington Pastime and hope that you will keep us in mind for future submissions.
We encourage you to mark The Washington Pastime response time at duoptrope.com, as we try hard to respond promptly to submissions.
