New Gimmick

Don't ask me why but I have decided to include a quirky little section in my blog postings for the rejections I receive from McSweeney's Open Letter To People or Entities Who Are Unlikely to Respond to You. McSweeney's does respond to me, unfortunately they do not accept my entries. So you, dear readers, will get the royal treatment and see my unpublished rejections. Although, since I am posting them on Paper Cut, I guess they will then be considered published. Whatever. The point is, I am sharing my Open Letter To People or Entities Who Are Unlikely to Respond to You. And, should you decide to send them a submission of your own and then have the good fortune of getting it published then please, by all means, let me know. You'll be entitled to a free Inca Cola.

Warm Wishes,
Blogger John


  1. Oh my gosh, one of my senior Bohemian girls wrote a hilarious open letter to grammar dominatrix, Diana Hacker. I just gmailed her and told her we MUST enter it. She'll come by tomorrow, and we'll tidy it up.

    I'm going to write one to my genes...left-handed, can't curl my tongue, dyslexic mirror writer. That, plus my left eye is greener than my right!

    I'd never heard of McSweeney's before, but I read over some letters that had me rolling.

    When will we see some of yours???

  2. I have one waiting in their queue. As soon as I get my reject I will make it public. In the meantime, I will I see if I can dig up any other losers.

    Rock on
