Dear Peter Goulding,
Sorry it's taken us so long to get back to you about your submission. We've been having all kinds of annoying email problems - hence the new Gmail account, which we hope will prevent that in future.
I regret to say we won't be taking any of the poems you submitted for Issue 12. We've received hundreds of submissions and turned down many good poems that just weren't a good fit for this particular issue. Thank you for submitting.
Co-editor, The Shit Creek Review
Well, looking on the bright side, this string of PFOs is freeing up some of my poems to submit again elsewhere...
