Rejection: The Missouri Review

Our call for your rejection letters (and that rarer breed, acceptances) has yielded many interesting responses, stories, and tips for writers. Rejection is an experience felt by the #hopefulwriter and professionals alike. 


Behold my recent rejection from the good old Missouri Review. So close! – S. Tremaine Nelson




The handwritten portion reads:

Thank you for submitting “The Chess Player” to The Missouri Review. We enjoyed reading the piece and it certainly had potential. We appreciate your continued interest in The Missouri Review and I strongly encourage you to submit more work to us. Thank you.
