Aspiring poet’s rejection letter from 1928 is delightfully brutal

TwitterFacebook

No one likes being rejected, especially when you receive a letter that gives your work an absolute dressing down.  

Penned by Australian publisher Angus & Robertson in 1928, the letter is addressed to Frederick Charles Meyer of Katoomba, who had sent a sample of his writing to the company.

The letter was sent by Kylie Parkinson to the Twitter page Letters of Note, who posted it on Tuesday. You’d rarely come across a letter as stern, albeit eloquent as this.
