    [Magazine] Sipper

    I recently received an email asking me to submit to a new magazine, 'Sipper'. This mag thinks so highly od itself that they are charging a reading fee for short story submissions. I replied in clear terms that i regarded such a practice beneath contempt. Has anyone else heard of this operation?

    Duotrope does not have a listing for them. Google can't find them either. Zipper is the only other magazine that I can find close to that name and that is an Asian mag.

    I couldn't find anything about it either, and i wonder if it might have been phishing. I just got an email,to which i replied in the negative. Then a reply to my reply and another of the first.

    Any idea how they got your email address?

    No, the one they used isn't the one that's plastered all over the world.

    No sign of any Sipper magazine launching or otherwise existing.
