From whom would an Honorable Mention notification come?

Postby AbigailFair » Tue Jun 26, 2018 12:03 pm

I got an email from "galaxypress" with an email domain of wizehive.com addressed to "Dear Entrant" and telling me that my story earned honorable mention in the 2nd quarter. I did in fact enter a story in WOTF this past quarter, so it could be legit! But since this is the first time I've entered, I'm not sure if I'm being scammed. ;)

~Abigail, obviously a n00b ;)

My guess would be between 2 to 5,000.

Thinking about one person reading at least a part of every one of the entries is mind boggling.

Factor in Dave reads every story that keeps his attention past page two.
