Zoetropism


Someone sent this rejection in for me to post. Samantha Schnee, a Senior Editor at Zoetrope, says this to the writer: "Thank you for sending these wonderful stories my way. I found [titles] the most compelling. I found [character names'] descriptions of love (their own and the love they feel for their [blank]) particulalry evocative. However, I would have liked a more definitive exploration of what actually happened." Wouldn't we all?

Nice blog! It's like PostSecret for writing rejects.

The worst rejection I've been told about was for a novel: "The first and last page are much much too far apart."
