I recently visited a site that didn't pay a cent for fiction, but had many condescending words for writers who had apparently bothered the editor with questions. I find this amazing, that someone has the nerve to ask for free fiction and still feels it is ok to bark at writers who are, essentially, being taken advantage of. Isn't it about time writers got together on this issue? We're working when we're writing, why aren't more editors recognizing this and offering ANY kind of payment? The old line, "Well, you get exposure," doesn't mean anything to a writer who has been published already. Aren't we doing these publications, whether print or online, a favor, by gracing their pages with our hard work? I am ready to form a united front of writers in protest of this heinous development in the literary world.
