Query 6/19
Email reject 7/14

A kind rejection letter, though I wish they used a format other than the BCC list. QM or even an individual email reject gives it a bit more of a personal touch IMO.

Thanks for thinking of me for this one! I'm sorry to say that I don't feel that this is the right fit for me, and therefore I would not be your most effective advocate. Unfortunately this is a pass from me, but I wish you the best of luck!
