    Natural Solutions Magazine

    On May 10, 2011, the National Writers Union issued the following Writers Alert regarding the conduct of Natural Solutions Magazine publisher Dick Benson:

    Between September 2010 and February 2011, InnoVision Health Media published 13 articles by nine members of the National Writers Union in Natural Solutions magazine. While Natural Solutions magazine commissioned, accepted and published the articles, its publisher, Dick Benson, has yet to pay most of these writers for their work. Although Mr. Benson finally responded to our messages on April 26, 2011, when he sent an email saying, “We have paid many of these and we are expecting to pay the remaining invoices shortly,” only one member, who was owed $350, has actually received payment. Benson still owes the remaining eight writers a collective total of $11,510.12. The NWU is continuing to pursue this matter and recommends that writers take into account this ongoing situation before submitting work to Natural Solutions magazine or any of Dick Benson’s other publications.

    Update: We are still working on this case and we will continue to do so until the writers are paid.
