So this is my dilemma... My first "serious" short story was rejected at the first handful of paying magazines/e-zines, so I decided to submit to a few non-paying publications. I understand both arguments pertaining to simultaneous submissions but, honestly, I couldn't see waiting that long between submissions for somewhere that doesn't pay for fiction. But I digress.. I was accepted by one and granted them permission to publish it a few weeks ago. However, it is for all intents and purposes just someone's blog. To be honest though, I was just happy someone wanted to put it out there. Flash forward to today -- I received an email from another publication who wishes to publish the same story. This is a much more professional outfit who has both online and actual copies of fiction magazines for sale. My question is two-fold... 1) Does it really matter from a resume standpoint if one is more professional since they're non-paying, or would some look at the more professional magazine and perhaps just assume they are a paying one? 2) If it does matter... is it possible to request to the owner of the fiction blog I originally was accepted at to take my story down?
