Definitely one of the friendlier literary rejections I have gotten. Always nice to get a personal rejection for your writing, as opposed to the first round form rejection>>
Thank you for your submission of "Andante and Allegro" and "Black Pavement."
Unfortunately we don't feel either are a good fit for XXXX XXXXX (edited out).
You have a wonderful talent for creating beautiful scenes with your words, and even though we won't be publishing your work, I enjoyed reading it!
Best of luck to you, and thank you again!
