Form rejection? "Dear ____: Thanks so much for sending along the sample pages of ________. I’m sorry to say, though, that I just wasn’t as completely drawn in by the material as much as I had hoped. What with my reservations, I’d better bow out. Thanks so much for contacting me, though! I really appreciate it and wish you the best of luck."

She emailed me back within one day asking for five pages. She responded back the same day I sent the five pages. While I was rejected, it was certainly personal and not a forum letter, which made me feel better.

Ms. Somberg is absolutely lovely! She didn’t connect with my work, but if she connects with yours, I’m sure you will be lucky to work with her. I encourage others to submit to her.

Rejection on 6/6/20 wasn't a form letter, but wasn't helpful. You need another option for when we record responses.

Submitted on 4/16
Rejected 4/20
Received response from Ms. Somberg in a personalized email kindly stating why she rejected. I found her response helpful and rejection warm. I'm impressed by her kindness since she must get a zillion of these. Maybe she will like my memoir. I'll try that next.
