This one is sort of interesting — it’s a form letter, but one that encourages further submission:
Additionally, there’s a personal note:
Sorry we held this so long — we fell behind this spring & our summer staff is small. “This Is Just” [the title of my submitted story] did come very close, though–
So, all in all, very encouraging, both at the form letter and personal note stage. And yet, I’m pretty sure Younger Barry never resubmitted there.
Younger Barry was an idiot.
