What is best to do when a poem is entered to a site, and  refused. Should a polite thank you be mailed back or just leave it as is.
The one I sent to 'tiny words' was refused, not what they were looking for at this time.
Don't want them to think I've got a 'cob on' about the refusal.

A tinywords submission of mine was rejected for the same reason. Editors have their  reasons. I let it go.

That said, I'll send a thank you and keep it short.

Thanks Rachel

I'm sure the editors do have their reasons and also a pile of mail to get through. Good to read the replies.

Thanks Lorraine

I've been trying to break into "Frogpond" and the "Modern Haiku" journals without any luck. Editors from both journals were actually pretty helpful giving some feedback when I explained I was trying to learn. One of them pointed me to this forum...
