Rejection Wiki–what is a tiered rejection and how can I tell if I got one?

We all receive many more rejections than acceptances. I recently learned that there are ways to help interpret the rejections literary magazines and journals send your way. Rejections actually come in many forms, including standard forms, tiered, and personal.

Specifically, a “tiered” rejection means the lit mag sends out different levels of rejections. The Nathaniel Tower of the Juggling Writer posted a great article describing several of these on his blog:

Ten Levels of Rejection (And What to Do About Them)

Additionally, there’s a “Rejection Wiki” where you can enter the name of the lit mag and view the rejections others have received and whether they are standard or a higher tier.

Try out the Rejection Wiki here.
