don't take it to heart!! she could have been having an off day, or she might send rejections like this more often than what's posted here!

Left a very terse, mean full rejection that didn't sit right with me, especially seeing how kindly she's responded to others below.

@fictiongirl "Thank you for sending [book]. Sorry to say but with your [roasts my writing in an unhelpful way] it is a pass from me. Best of luck." It felt off compared to the usual "while there was much to admire/writing is subjective" rejections, especially in response to solicited material from a diverse pitch contest.

@queerying would you be comfortable sharing what was terse and mean about it? definitely sounds like a red flag that could help others make informed decisions, but understandable if you don't wish to share.
