The pit of despair

Some of my more notable rejections:

15-09-10 In The Write Light did not offer me a free place at their retreat.

31-07-10 A submission to this year's The Guardian short fiction contest got nowhere. Ah well.

14-11-09 Black Gate Tours, a co-written 60-minute TV pilot, got nowhere in a BBC competition (update: same story with BBC's Write Here Write Now).

12-08-09 The Human Genre project said my story "Don't Let Go" was good, but didn't fit their brief.

31-07-09 Edinburgh Book Festival's Story Shop decided that they didn't want me to read at their event. My submission was a piece of short fiction called "Sit, Stand, Kneel"
