Prose rejections

Standard

Dear Submitter,

We appreciate the opportunity to read “Story Title,” and we appreciate the time and effort you spent crafting it. Unfortunately, we have chosen to not accept this story for publication.

This doesn’t mean the story was necessarily bad. It might have been accepted had the magazine been able to publish stories more frequently. Sadly, we can only currently publish one story a month, and we receive hundreds of excellent submissions per month. This means we must reject many stories we enjoy and appreciate. We do not accept revised stories at Orion’s Belt, but we hope you have success finding a home for this story, and we encourage you to submit another story to this magazine.

Best regards, Orion's Belt Team First Reader, Orion’s Belt

Dear Submitter:

We appreciate the opportunity to read “Story Title” and thank you for submitting it to us. Unfortunately, we’ve not accepted this story for publication.

We’re able to publish one story a month, and we receive hundreds of excellent submissions. As a result, we end up turning away many stories we enjoy and admire.

We wish you success in publishing your piece elsewhere and hope you’ll consider submitting more work to us in the future.

Best regards, Rhonda Schlumpberger Fiction Editor Orion’s Belt
