Top 10 books of all time. “By turns funny, wise, and heartbreaking, To Kill a Mockingbird is one classic that continues to speak to new generations, and deserves to be reread often. —Alix Wilber”

I don’t know about other magazines, but we do have tiers of rejections. For the slush pile we have two form rejections: One reads “Thank you for submitting your work…We regret that we are unable to publish it.” The other includes the line “we like your work and would like to see more of it.” Work that is submitted directly to me usually receives a personal reply, by hand or by e-mail, depending. And then there are those cases when a submission gets lost on my computer, or underneath somebody’s desk and the months go by…but we are trying to eliminate that tier.
