Cutaway rejections: Halfway

For those of you out there that have embarked on the long and arduous journey of sending out your much-loved work in the hopes of publication, I hope that you will appreciate this blog post by a new magazine: Cutaway.

In Halfway we hear about a publisher’s take on the ever feared “rejection letter”.

They kindly include links to recommended sites to resubmit work if Cutaway isn’t right for your work (that’s the best way to see it – the source not the right market for you, not the other way around). Though he does recommend you give your work a quick edit before submitting anywhere else, just to make sure!

Enjoy!

    I do wish everyone did something like that. Even a form letter stating “your [romance] was not a good fit for our [SF] magazine” would let you know they weren’t just being polite.

    What a terrific thing to do. By reading his blog writers know he “knows the pain” of rejection for whatever reason, but to then offer links to magazines that would be a better fit for the piece is absolutely validating.

    Thanks so much for posting this!

    • They’re not personally tailored to each submission but, at the end of his blog, he has offered a few sites and magazines to check with in the event of not being accepted by his magazine. The moral being, just because you’re rejected, doesn’t mean it’s not worth trying to find another market as it may very well be suitable elsewhere.
