    Brand spanking new, currently calling for submissions in every genre, and poetry and articles (?) for their journal. No experience listed, no books as yet, it look like. Payment is "fair compensation."

    Solicited fulls must be sent hard copy.

    I dunno, I'm a pass on this one so far.

    As Tri, mentioned, this is a big red flag...


    "Because we are a small press we cannot give as much as we’d like, though we try to compensate as fairly as possible. We emphasize that the compensation is not necessarily a reflection of the work."

    How vague is that? Umm, no thanks.

    Thanks! They approached me after reading my work in a literary journal. I don't know the details yet, but I will update if I learn more.
