The world’s best/worst rejection letter
Posted on August 27th, 2012
One of our friends recently queried a publishing house and received this truly jaw-droppingly awful response.
I like your poems but I am afraid that we could not publish them successfully—we at no well known enough to market a poetry book. however, we are very interested in non-fiction: information about animals, how things work,** History, inventions, and biography.
With best wishes
**Our friend’s addition: “information about how things work.” Oh, you mean, like how proof-reading works?
Talk about dodging a bullet. Yikes!
