I received a rejection from Columbia: A Journal of Literature & Art today letting me know they really enjoyed my "piece," but that it wasn't right for them. This might be the standard rejection form now, or it could be the encouragement form. The reason I think it could be the rejection rather than the encouragement form is that I sent 4 poems, and they rejected my "piece." I would think if they were being encouraging they would try to accurately reflect the work I sent them. I still like them a whole lot. Wait time = about 3 months.
If you missed picking up a copy of my ml Press Chapbook, a limited number are available at Powell's
Also, 20 Days Until AWP! (I keep forgetting to add the countdown to my posts.)
