Fiction Rejections


Dear —,

Thank you for giving us the chance to read your writing. We are grateful for your interest in our publication.

While in the end we have decided against publishing your work in the upcoming issue of Watershed Review, we want you to know your submission made it to the editorial table. The selection process for each issue is comprised of many conversations of craft, negotiations, and spirited debate. Your work was part of this crucial process this time around.

We encourage you to send us more writing soon. Meanwhile, we wish you the best in placing this piece elsewhere.

Sincerely, The WR Editors

Poetry Rejections



Dear first-name,

We apologize for the delay in response to your submission. The pandemic has shifted focus for the world, including our small orbit here at Watershed Review. On behalf of the editors of Watershed Review, we sincerely thank you for sending us your writing. We appreciated the opportunity to read these poems.

Though the work you sent to us has not found a home with Watershed Review at this time, we wish you the best in placing this work elsewhere.

Wishing you good health, The WR Editors
