Well, I got dissed by another creative writing agency today. This time, it was over the phone. Here's a tidbit from the uncomfortable conversation:
Disser: "Well, Ms. Merujo, we've reviewed everything you sent us and honestly, it really isn't of the sophisticated caliber required for the DC market."
Merujo: "Okaaaaay. Can you offer any advice on how I could improve my copy to be competitive with the writers you're hiring?"
Disser: "Well... it's hard to put a finger on it... I think your stuff would work in a smaller town..."
In a smaller town? Omigod. Apparently, I'm a yokel writer. I had no idea! And I'm sure my friends back in Illinois will be thrilled to know that smaller towns don't deserve high quality writing. I guess y'all aren't smart enough for them thar big words them city folks use.
Smacking my forehead against the wall now...
