In light of your article about literary magazines charging reading fees, I’d like to mention that the “New Ohio Review,” which is featured in this week’s Paying Markets, charges a $3 reading fee:
“As of January 24, 2014, New Ohio Review will require a $3 reading fee for online submissions. This regrettable charge has become necessary due partly to rising printing costs and, more significantly, to the recent inundation of online submissions overwhelming our small staff, whose editors continue to consider every submission with care and respect. We are happy to waive online submission charges for our subscribers; and paper submissions are not subject to any fee. Thank you for your loyalty and understanding in these cyber-trying times.”
FROM THE PUBLISHER
Thanks so much, Robin! We have blacklisted them as well.
