I had to withdraw 2 of the 4 poems I sent Whiskey Island. I've talked to people who think that withdrawing whole submissions makes editors want you more. To these people, I say, "Perhaps you've never been on the editing end. There are too many submissions to organize your biases in this way."
I do wonder just a little if seeing that two editors had obviously rejected the two poems that were left for Whiskey Island to consider, maybe made the poems slightly less desirable to that magazine.
Also, their rejection letter is super short: "Though your work was not selected for publication, we thank you for submitting."
