Short(er) Daughters of American Fiction

Subject: The American Short(er) Fiction Prize
Dear Writer McWriter:
You and your fellow contest entrants stunned and delighted us with your stories. We received close to 1,000 entries this year for the American Short(er) Fiction Prize, and we learned again and again that the short form is incredibly versatile and powerful. Thanks for sharing your work with us and showing us what flash fiction can do. We're sorry to report that your work did not place as a finalist. We wish you the best of luck in placing it elsewhere.
Sincerely,
The Editors of American Short Fiction

Dear Writey McWriterson:
We're sorry to report that you are not a former student of one of the judges and thus your work did not place as a finalist. We wish you the best of luck in wasting money on entrance fees.
Sincerely,
Every Fiction Contest Ever
