"Thank you for sending over your submission. While I appreciate the amount of work you’ve put into creating this story, I am unfortunately going to have to pass on this project.

As you may know, fiction is very subjective and just because this wasn’t a good fit for me, that doesn’t mean that someone else won’t feel differently.

I wish you the best of luck moving forward.

Best,

Matt Belford (he/him)
