You touched a critical topic P.G. Reading many rejection messages from editors with unrelated reasons and robotic voices bleed my heart. Writers are human beings with feelings too. It is ironic that the creativity of writers is punished for the gain of a simple tool which Medium calls publication. The contrived rules and insensitive replies concern me a lot. I lost my respect and faith in some large publications paradoxically some writers die to publish. In reality, the size of publications makes little or no difference. This situation was one of the reasons I created ILLUMINATION and its inclusive values which resonated over 2,700 writers in four months. I will document my findings before and after to shed some lights on this sensitive topic. Thank you for raising awareness with rigour and exceptional style you have.
