Fail

(This is upsetting. Mostly because this is a form and no real specific editorial comment was given. And I used their submission form online and they want to know if they should return it or shred my email?–showing me there was not much thought to this email.)

Dear John Paul Jaramillo,

 Thank you for submitting your manuscript entitled Huerfanos to Arte Público Press. Unfortunately, your submission was not selected for publication.
