Does anyone have the scoop on ByLine Magazine? (www.bylinemag.com). A number of months ago, they ceased publication due to "personal problems." Okay, but here's the thing: they presumably are still running their contests, but they haven't announced any winners.
I entered an April contest, and the winners normally would have been announced in the magazine three months later, in the July issue. But there was no July issue, and thus no announcement. This is the case for the May, June, and July contests as well.
On their website, they have the August-December contests still listed (as though they are still running), with the notation that winners will be announced on the website in three months. Well, no August winners have been announced, either.
I have written to the editor now three times about this, and have never received a response. It seems wrong to me that they are continuing to run these contests -- and are collecting money -- but never announce the winners.
Meanwhile, I subscribed in April and only received two issues. The subscription price is $24.00, not inexpensive. What happens in this kind of situation? Is the magazine supposed to issue refunds?
Thanks in advance for any information anyone might have.
