Do We Really Mean It?
People often ask me about Missouri Review‘s “personalized” rejections. Do we really mean it when we say that we’d like to see more of their work in the future?
The short answer is yes. Our numbers of submissions are high enough (somewhere around 15,000 a year) that we have no reason to ask for more submissions unless we see promise in a piece. Our percentage of early or first publications demonstrates that we really are looking for good new writing talent.
It’s kind of old-fashioned, but yes we read every submission with equal interest and we’re being straight with writers when we say please try us again.
