2018 Thanks for the opportunity to read "xxxx." I'm sorry to say that after review by the editorial staff, we came to a decision not to accept it for publication. It's never easy to say no to someone's essay.
I appreciate that you're thinking of Fourth Genre for nonfiction, and wish you the best with your work.
