Form Rejection Bingo

30 Jul

“This wasn’t right for us”

“This didn’t speak to me.”

“Taking on a client is a personal decision.”

“I am not the right agent for your work.”

“This is a subjective business”

“I can only take on what really excites me.”

“This is to acknowledge receipt of your work.”

“Please do not despair.”‘

“On average, we receive over X queries every Y…”

“It only takes one ‘yes’ to find a match”

“I wish you luck”

“No, Thanks.”

NO RESPONSE

(Free Space)

“We do not have room for this.”

“We would not be effective finding a market for this”

“At this time…”

“While I enjoyed reading it,…”

“While I read all submissions carefully,…”

“Don’t be discouraged.”

“Keep us in mind for future projects.”

“We often have to pass on worthy projects”

“Thank you for the opportunity to read your work.”

“Alas,…”

“…not a good fit…”

“We cannot respond in detail to all”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For those entering query-land.

    I’ve gotten seven rejection letters so far, and they all sound like this. This made me laugh so hard. Thank you.
