A Conversation for A guide to the world of h2g2 rejection

Curious rejection letter

Post 1


Dear ShockWave,

Thank you ever so much for submitting your h2g2 Guide Entry entitled
"Bungee Climbing" for the approval of the Editors.

Unfortunately it hasn't quite managed to gain the approval of the
Editorial team, but perhaps the following comments from the Editor
concerned will help you to understand why.

"This is a very amusing submission. I thought it was great. But is there *really* such a thing as Bungy Climbing? If not, then sadly this is fiction, and cannot go into the Edited Guide. "

Don't forget, though, that your Guide Entry will still come up in
search results and that it is still very much a part of the Guide.
And don't be put off from submitting more Entries for our approval:
in the meantime you might find it useful to read our Submissions
Guide at http://www.h2g2.com/A53209

Best wishes,

Mark Moxon
Editor, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Earth Edition
