New Letters, Same Old Rejection

Here's another old finalist notification I dug up from my files.  I was a finalist for the New Letters fiction contest, but in the end it led to nothing but a close call. Not even publication in the journal, which is kind of a bummer.  But, oh well.  I like the letter head on this one.

OK, here's one. A friend's article was accepted by the New York Times Magazine or Book Review, I'm not sure which, but she was elated. They paid her a handsome sum and never published the thing. They supposedly do it all the time. Which would you rather: the money or the publication? You can't put the money on your resume, but you can't eat your publication either.
