I had two poems accepted yesterday. This was the first time(s) I received an acceptance in which the email subject line was written to tip you off right away.
“Good News from Boxcar Poetry Review!”
“Bateau Accepts”

That was nice, and strange, and I was thrilled to be accepted both places. Boxcar took a poem called “Hive.” And Bateau, a new publication, took my praise poem “Used Books.”

I'm glad a never got a rejection with a clue-in subject line.

sarah - congratulations on your acceptances. :) and yes, the subject lines sound nice.

i kind of liked the subject line of my redactions acceptance: "This is just to say" ... *G*

your word verification is still n-less, and sounds french: trdroie.

Sarah, congratulations the idea of a clue-in headline - it stops the 'will-it or won't-it be' jitters on pressing to open... love the photo.
