    GUD: Greatest Uncommon Denominator Magazine

    I'm thinking about sending in some poetry to them. Here's their site:

    Everything looks good, but I'm curious if you guys have heard anything about them.

    I've heard nothing but shiny good things about GUD: good quality publication, decent pay rates, and people with solid experience in the field.

    Same here,

    couple of my friends were not only paid professional rates, they get royalties

    But GUD is a tough nut to crack. Good luck

    A high-quality publication, and extremely hard to break into. I don't have a rejection letter from them yet, but I plan on acquiring quite a few in the near future.

    I've got Issue 3 on my coffee table. Amazing story on p. 57 by Twizzle, as well as a piece by Evil Editor.

    I've also looked into this mag and hearing your reports makes me think I should brave it. Love the name, too.

    Just wanted to note that GUD is having a sale on their back issues: http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/...d.php?t=122890 A great opportunity to see what they're made of.

    Thanks!


    I like to think of them as our ever-growing collection of current issues--collect them all!

    Hey Kaolin, think you could just send me the rejection letter now before I submit my manuscript?

    Thank you for sending us "{submissiontitle}". Unfortunately, it's not what we're looking for at this time.

    I joined a long time ago but I haven't submitted or bought anything yet. They look a good place to publish.

    Well, I just submitted a poem to them. It's my very first submission, so I'll likely be getting my very first rejection letter in about ten days to a month.

    *hee* She's a crafty one, that sqrl. I'm less crafty. My comments are best left inside our secret lair. She jumbles them up temporally and spreads them out, I understand.

    Hmm. Well. We haven't mentioned it to anyone in particular, yet? @buffysquirrel and @kaolinfire are the two editors who commonly tweet, and @gudmagazine is a shared acct (though mostly me).
