EVERY WEEK, REJECTION LETTERS FROM MY PAST. BECAUSE THE HURT GOES AWAY AFTER A COUPLE OF DECADES.

THIS WEEK IN REJECTION!

This Week in Rejection!: Lite

No, this week is not about being rejected by a beer that tastes like water…

This rejection letter from Lite (Baltimore’s Literary Newspaper) is — inarguably — the single most efficient form letter I have ever seen. And I’ve seen a lot of ’em, folks.

Notice that this letter — this solitary letter — serves not only as a rejection letter, but also as a “you’re on the waitlist” letter (for two different scenarios), as well as an actual acceptance letter! That’s right — it’s first on This Week in Rejection!: We have discovered the rare, elusive form letter acceptance!

An astonishing feat from the folks at Lite, really.
