I did at last receive my rejection from Cave Wall (www.cavewallpress.com), and I have to say, if I weren’t already happily married with child etc, I would totally fall in love with the editor. Seriously. That was the single greatest rejection ever! — loaded with comments & praise — subscribe now, Rhett (the editor) is awesome, she deserves beaucoup rewards for such generosity! And as I mentioned earlier, it’s an excellent journal, too.
I won’t go so far as to say a great rejection is better than an acceptance, but I’ll be carrying this envelope around with me for a while.
