I Got Told by an Editor That My Style of Writing Was Fake

It’s not just our readers who can determine our value, apparently

A mixed-race girl with long, wavy dark brown hair is slumped onto a dark wooden table. She is within a brightly lit house, potentially her living room. Her chin rests in her downward facing hands that rest together with her arms upon the table. Her entire face is relaxed apart from her serious-looking eyes that glare at the open screen of her silver laptop. The contents of the screen are hidden from view but she appears bothered by it.

I recently read an essay by an editor about their loathing for certain writing topics and felt the views expressed put a distasteful wedge between themselves and a majority of the online writing community.
