I did at least receive a personalised (insofar as my name was on it) typed response that I could read, but it took more than three months, which is quite a long time for a standard rejection.

My manuscript and illustrations were returned with a scribbled hand written note at the bottom right hand corner of my covering letter saying, (quote): "Alas verse is impossible to sell unless he's an established poet n writer, Thank you for sending this." The reply, although prompt, was unprofessional in its format (i.e. no covering letter), blunt and unencouraging to a first time writer.
