So this is possibly one of the longest rejections coming: I just heard back from Crate Magazine that they do not want the chapter of my novel I had sectioned off as a story and submitted as a story back in March of 2008. Pretty great. Thanks for the heads.
Also, either they were being kind and calling my story artwork, or they thought I had sent them visual art instead of a story. That's 15 days shy of 2 years, Crate. Bravo. Hope you're well.
