Revolutionary Same-Old Same-Old

Here's from a group called the Cooperative Press, meant to subvert the current state of publishing by teaching writers about the publishing process, providing opportunities for netoworking, publication and education. Costs $35 bucks for all that. And yet they still reject you the same old stale way:
Thank you for your submission to the Michigan Writers Cooperative Press. Our readers evaluated fourteen manuscripts for this round and chose three for publication. Although your manuscript was not selected, we cannot emphasize how much we appreciate your participation. Receiving so many quality submissions for this fifth year of our publishing project bodes well for the continued success of the Cooperative Press. We hope that you will try again. Please check the website for further updates. Again, thank you for sharing your work with us.
Sincerely, Michael Callaghan, Chair, Cooperative Press Committee,Michigan Writers, Inc. Marcy Branski & Denise Baker, Co-Presidents, Michigan Writers, Inc.
Thanks for sharing.
