Congratulate me, I've been rejected! And a form letter, no less! Woohoo! One step closer to publication...
Here it is:
Thank you for your submission. Unfortunately we will not be able to use this work for Vestal Review. We receive many well-written, compelling, stories, but can only take a very limited number due to constraints of space and style. We wish you the best of luck in placing your story elsewhere.
Vestal Review Editorial Team
I think I'll go celebrate.

My offer for congratulations is contingent on whether or not your piece is already on its way to the next editor on your list. If so, you get a woo-hoo! to go with it. If not, please return to this post when you've done so.
