Read the Winner, Loser; Subscription is Free




Is the subscription really free or did you have to pay money to enter the contest? Just wondering; I've done it a million times myself:
Thank you for submitting "Title of your Work" to The Willow Springs Fiction Prize. Unfortunately, your story was not selected as this year's winner. We do hope you enjoy the chosen story, which will be featured in Willow Springs issue 70. As a contest entrant, your subscription to the magazine will begin with this issue. We wish you the best of luck in placing your story elsewhere. Sincerely, The Editors, Willow Springs

Submitter of the rejection sheepishly admits:

$15 entry fee.
