Thank you for submiting your work to the BPJ. We've decided against holding it for our second round of deliberations, but we're grateful for having had the chance to consider it.
We shall not be using your manuscript. Thank you, however, for giving us the opportunity to consider it.

Thank you for your submission to the BPJ. Though we haven't selected any poem in your manuscript for publication, we appreciate your work and hope you will keep sending poems our way. We were particularly engaged by "[title]." Please do try us again. Warm regards, [Co-editor]
Thank you so much for submitting your poems for consideration for the Adrienne Rich Award for Poetry. The quality of the submissions was astonishly high--yours included. While we did not ultimately select your work, we admired it and hope you'll keep the BPJ in mind as a possible home for your poems in the future.
Best wishes-- [name], co-editor
