Prose rejections

2018 nonfiction

My name is Madeleine Carlisle and I’m an editorial fellow with The Atlantic. Thank you for submitting your pitch xxxx. Unfortunately, we’ll have to pass on the piece, but we encourage you to pitch us again in the future!

Best of luck placing it elsewhere.



Dear [Name]:

“Title” is literate and knowing, though a bit long for Atlantic purposes and not entirely persuasive. You’re plainly a writer, however, and I hope you’ll try us again.


Michael Curtis

Fiction Editor, The Atlantic.



Though the manuscript you sent has not found a place in The Atlantic, we thank you for the chance to consider it. Best of luck in placing it elsewhere.


As above with handwritten note on rejection slip.
