I’ve just finished reading a whole pile of submissions. This was for an anthology of stories for infant school aged children. I’ve had to reject several in which there was nothing wrong with the writing. Reasons include:
- The story was too long.
- The writer hadn’t quite got the age group right.
- Some of the language was too complex.
- A though this story is good it is too similar to another which is even better.
- The content goes against the ethos of one of the companies with which we are associated.
