You can view the entire film here and while you're at it, might as well go ahead and read my interview with the owner/operator of Celestial Elf right'cheer! There will be a test and harsh consequences if you're not ready for it.
Enjoy! Leave comments.

Here's the letter with the magazine's name excluded:
Let's ignore the fact that the editor of a fiction magazine used the phrase "for to put" as if they're coming from Louisiana with a banjo on their knee. Am I the only one that noticed the contradictory phrasing of "review by our editorial staff" and "too depressing for me?" To paraphrase that great sage Bud Bundy, am I the only one that noticed the emperor has holes in his underwear?
Oh, but the best part is the request at the end to do their marketing and research work for them. I'm all for that writing community crap but it ends at the fingertips of the person who accepts or rejects my work and decides if I get paid for it.
A friend recommended I frame this one. I think I might. All part of the experience~

Benefit for Beyond Basics
Sponsored by ICU Eyewear and Leon & Lulu
Celebrate reading and writing, get new glasses and help promote literacy all at the same time!
Leon & Lulu will celebrate reading and writing with
its second annual Books & Authors event.
We love to read and we just adore writers so we are giving nearly 40 Michigan authors space to sell and sign their books, meet their fans and help promote literacy in Michigan. Shoppers will enjoy refreshments, live entertainment and support Beyond Basics, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation offering reading, writing and expanding horizons enrichment programs to students attending public schools in Metro Detroit.
The Books & Authors event is co-sponsored by ICU Eyewear, purveyor of fun and fancy reading glasses. ICU has donated a limited quantity of fashionable and funky reading glasses, which will be sold the weekend of the event for $17 (regular retail $22).
All proceeds from the sale of the reading glasses, tips and raffle money
will also benefit Beyond Basics.
Entertainment will be provided by Trio Fiori
(Jeffrey Beyer, flute; Theresa Stacy, violin; Sharon Sweet, piano)
