I’m sure others might’ve mentioned it but it’s ironic “>that you advise not to pay a ‘reading fee’ – and lo and behold, the first market in your recent newsletter (Gulf Coast) – no mention in the (long) guidelines but click to the webpage – and they charge a $2 reading fee.
FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Thank you, Christine! Below is a copy of the email we just sent to Gulf Coast:
This email is to inform you that you have been blacklisted by WritersWeekly.com for charging writers a reading fee.
If you can’t support your publication with dollars other than those coming from writers’ pockets, you should not be in business. Don’t expect writers to contribute to your hobby.
