  1. I have to say I think this is a bad, bad deal.

    You have to pay $10 to enter. If you win, you get $200. Runners-up get the “glory” of publication and a copy of the magazine.

    They are fundraising on the hopes of unknown authors, so that they can publish work by people like Joyce Carol Oats and Milan Kundera. In my opinion, this is the WORST way to raise money for a publication.

    No wonder comments are closed on their posting.

  2. Sounds like somebody is pissed off because their writing sucks and they can’t get into a good magazine
