The Crumbs That Got The Snub

Hi Justine

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this. We have now had a chance to look at your work and although we really enjoyed what we read, in particular the title story ‘Panacalty’, unfortunately we don’t feel we would be the right agents to take it any further. I am very sorry to disappoint but thank you very much for thinking of us in connection with your writing.

Best wishes


Hi Justine

The Editorial Board met this week to discuss manuscripts which included your submission.  After much discussion, the Board reluctantly made the decision that this collection was not one for this publishing house.I know this is no comfort but the  Board wanted me to convey to you that you have a unique voice and that there was a great deal to appreciate in your collection.


Hi Justine,

You are a talented writer and we love the stories but 
unfortunately think the British stories are a bit too removed from 
Australian life. You write with humour and warmth which is to be 

Again, really sorry that your manuscript ultimately wasn't for us but we wish you all the best with it elsewhere.

Best regards
