Today’s email from Medium Support is making me feel a whole lot less supported.

Hi there,

Thank you for applying for the Medium Creator Fellowship, and for all your writing on Medium. We were only able to accept a limited number of Fellows for this first group, and unfortunately we aren’t offering you a Fellowship at this time. Admission was based on both the stated eligibility requirements as well as subjective criteria, including quality and focus of writing and diversity of writers. We also made sure to include a mix of new and more established writers who regularly meet our distribution standards.
