This is a delightful story with a great grasp of narrative movement, plot, and strong insights on the world of journalism.
Unfortunately this particular piece was not a right fit for Missouri Review, but we were very impressed by your writing. We hope that you will feel encouraged by this short note and send us something else.
We look forward to reading more.
