Thank you for submitting [Omitted] to Alternative War. I will not be buying this submission. The volume of submissions means that many quality works, like this one, cannot be bought. I sincerely hope you submit in the future.



Thank you again for your interest in Boneyard Soup Magazine and for allowing us to review your story submission. Unfortunately, the story does not meet our editorial needs at this time. We receive story submissions on a daily basis and the limited space in our magazine means we must reject the majority of what we receive. This makes editorial decisions all the more difficult and frustrating. We sincerely hope your story finds a home soon, and that you’ll consider submitting more work in the future.


Thank you for giving me the opportunity to read [Omitted]. I appreciate the time you took to send it in for consideration. Although it does not suit the needs of the magazine at this time, I wish you luck with placing it elsewhere.


Thank you for sending [Omitted] to Metaphorosis magazine. We appreciate the chance to review it. Unfortunately, the piece is not for us. Best of luck finding it a home elsewhere.


We have read your submission and unfortunately your story isn’t quite what we’re looking for right now. While we regretfully cannot provide detailed feedback due to the volume of submissions, we thank you for your interest in our magazine and hope you continue to consider us in the future.


Thank you for submitting your story for The Alchemy Press Book of Horrors 3: A Miscellany of Monsters. The submission’s window was short but by the end of January we had have received well over 350 submissions, which is far more than we anticipated, and obviously far too many for this anthology. Sadly we are unable to include your story in this volume but wish you every success in placing it elsewhere.


Thanks very much for the opportunity to read your submission, and for your patience while it was under review. While I enjoyed it, I’m sorry to say that it’s not quite what I’m looking for at this time. I hope you find a home for it soon, and again I’m grateful to you for thinking to send it my way.


Thank you so much for sending us [Omitted]. We appreciate the chance to read it. Unfortunately, the piece is not quite right for us.
