IAMA(n) editorial assistant at a publishing house and reject hundreds of manuscripts a week. AMA. By request: again.

It took me about a week of doing this to stop looking for literary genius and start the mass filtering of Crazy and Bad that is my job.

Also, it's unpaid interns who do the bulk of the rejecting; I just supervise and keep track of things.
