Dear [First Name],
Thank you for sending us ‘[Submission Title]’, We really appreciated the opportunity to read your work, but unfortunately this story didn’t make our final cut.
We only publish a very small percentage (less than 1%) of the submissions we receive.
Thanks again for sending us your story and for supporting independent presses. Our first issue is coming out soon…ish. We hope you’ll enjoy it and try us again some time.
Best of luck with your writing, [First Name].

Thank you for sending us '[storytitle]'. Sorry that it has taken us a while to get back to you. We really appreciated the opportunity to read your work, but unfortunately this one didn't make our final cut. The magazine mogul life is usually all bling and champagne breakfasts but one of the downers is that we can't take all the pieces that deserve to be published.
Good luck with your story, in other words, and sorry we can't give you more specific feedback. It's a tough game out there, we know. If you are still feeling nice things for us and want to try us again, please send us some work in a few weeks time. Thanks for supporting independent presses.
Warm regards, Harriet Deputy Editor
