My First Rejection Letter!

From The New Yorker Shouts & Murmurs editor:
Dear Teresa,

We’re sorry to say that your piece, “Invisibility Cloak Not Necessary,” wasn’t right for us, despite its evident merit. Thank you for allowing us to consider your work.

Best regards,

The Shouts Dept.

Can’t help but feel the bit about my work’s “evident merit” is a backhanded compliment, but I am definitely grateful for the personalized response. I remain positive, knowing this is the first of many rejection letters I’ll receive as I continue to write and put my work out there. Bring 'em on!
