Thank you for submitting your manuscript. We have read it with care and regret that we cannot use it. The volume of submissions that we receive makes it impossible for us to respond individually to each story and poem.

Thank you for submitting [Titles of Poems] to The Journal. Though we decided against accepting your manuscript, we want you to know that we found it particularly compelling. We read every submission with care, and while we can only publish a small fraction of what we receive, the most exciting part of our job is reading such a wide variety of work. We would be glad to see more of your writing in the future.
