Reject Rejections

Everyone knows the pain of rejection. Writers get little pieces of paper telling us we didn't make the cut. So I loved this rephrasing of various lit journals' rejection notes. It's like what they do with movie reviews.

Some favorites:

“YOUR STORY DID … MEET OUR STANDARDS…” —American Literary Review

“WE … PUBLISH IT … WE APPRECIATE …” —The Paris Review

“… YOU THE BEST[!] …” —Faultline

I am so going to cut up future rejection letters and do this on my own.
