Poetry rejections


Dear [name],

Thank you for sending us your work. We appreciate the opportunity to read it. Unfortunately, it's not for us. As writers ourselves, we want you to know how much we hate sending out these types of responses. We get them ourselves; we know how discouraging they can be. Please remember that our decision has more to do with our visions and aesthetics than with the quality of your work.

Thanks again. Best of luck with this.
Liz Kay
