Glimmer of Hope for My Manuscript

My book manuscript, The Rusted City, was a finalist for the Black Box Poetry Prize from Rescue Press.  After almost 15 flat-out rejections/no-responses/not-even-a-finalist emails, I’ve never been so happy to be declared not-quite-the-winner of something.

The winner and finalists are listed here on the Rescue Press blog.

    Congratulations! I’m very happy for you while mentally shaking my fist at all callous non-responders-something I’m all too familiar with, alas. You encourage me to keep on keeping on!

    Congrats, it’s always good to see fellow writers getting closer to their dreams. The non-responders are the worst. The least they could do is send out a generic rejection email/letter. How hard is that?
