The scattered thoughts of short story writer Sandra Seamans
Sunday, May 8, 2016
Some days I get so frustrated looking for markets. Today I found an anthology call looking for flash fiction pieces. It all sounded good until I reached the paying part of the guidelines where they "might possibly" pay the writers two dollars but since the money was coming out of the publisher's pocket this could change to no payment at all. Now, if a publisher can't afford to pay twenty or thirty writers two bucks a piece, that publisher shouldn't be in business.
