Could anyone who's received a rejection from a Carus magazine (Babybug, Ladybug, Spider, Cricket, Cicada) tell me if their rejection slip said this:
". . . we regret to inform you that we do not find it [your material] appropriate for our publications."
I've gotten this from Cicada and Cricket, and wonder if it is simply standard rejection-speak. I try not to read too much into these things, but being told my material is inappropriate makes me wonder if I was REALLY off the mark or just foul or something :b
