Form rejection from "Submission Editor"

Thank you for your submission.


Your work has been carefully reviewed, and it has been determined that Holloway Literary will not be pursuing representation of your manuscript. We regret sending you this information in a form letter; however, due to the volume of emails we receive daily it is almost impossible to send customized letters to every author. Thank you again for thinking of Holloway Literary, and we wish you every success in your writing career.


Best Regards,


Sabrina Berndt
Submissions Coordinator
