Fitting to run this rejection on a Sunday. What you get when you send an essay to the Modern Love Column of the Sunday New York Times is the following rejection: "Dear Writer, Rejected: I'm afraid we can't use your essay in Modern Love, but we appreciate the opportunity to consider it. The volume of unsolicited submissions we receive prevents us from responding personally to each writer, but please know all essays are read and considered, and in fact we discover many of the essays for the column among these submissions. Thank you for your interest and best of luck. --Modern Love editors"
I've gotten this rejection three times. How about you?
Read an interesting response to Modern Love from someone whose ex wrote about her in the column at The Black Table.
