I got a rejection letter in the mail today from a literary journal to which I submitted a piece of writing.
The literary journal in question is published by the university where I received my MFA in 2008.
I was an editor of the literary journal's 2006 issue.
The rejection was a form letter, though written very warmly, and it's easy to see that the person who wrote it understands what it is like to be a writer. I think it is one of the best rejection form letters I've ever seen.
Of course, I'm biased.
I wrote the damn thing back in November 2005.
