Dear Editor,

Thank you for expressing your interest in rejecting my story. Over the past few months I've had many people interested in rejecting my work, making it quite difficult to decide on which ones to accept. Make no mistake that your rejection letter was one of the higher quality ones I receive on a daily basis. However, due to the high number of rejected submissions received, I am sorry to say that I cannot accept your rejection letter at this time. I will be looking forward to reading my story printed in your magazine in the near future. Thanks again.

I appreciate your interest in rejecting my work and am willing to consider accepting further rejection letters in the foreseeable future.


Wouldn’t you like to know

  1. This is perfect. At Triangulation, we take care to provide a personal comment as well, so I trust that when you send one of these to us, you'll at least include something like, "The rejection develops too slowly for my taste" or "I value plot over character; therefore when you mentioned your regret at having to reject my fine work, I lost all interest."

    Anyway, I just stopped by to congratulate you on overachieving for Write 1 Sub 1 in March. May April bring more stories!
