Congratulations. I was super excited when they expressed interest in my pitch, but then when I sent samples, they said I wasn’t a good fit. I’m bewildered because I write personal essays that experiment with style and touch on current issues and that’s exactly what they say they’re looking for in the post you linked to. Do you think it’s best to send them an unpublished draft rather than a pitch?
