    [eZine] Terraform

    Anyone have any dealings with Terraform? They launched in November of this year, have some short stories up already, and pay $0.20/word. Submission guidelines are here.

    They seem to be part of larger internet-news-magazine called Motherboard.

    Terraform

    I sent Terraform a story almost two months ago and haven't heard a thing since. They're evidently still publishing; there's new content on the site. Does anyone have a query address for Terraform? Does anyone know what their typical response time is? Thanks for any info.

    My response took about two months. They're a bit new to really know what's typical for them.

    It looks like Motherboard is part of Vice Magazine, meaning that they are certainly reputable, and explains why they can pay such a high rate as a new publication.

    So, here's my full experience. I submitted in November 2014, shortly after Terraform opened. In January 2015, I got an acceptance. They said they'd send the edits soon. That's the last I heard from them. I tried nudging about the edits, and eventually withdrew my story in April 2016. They're still active and buying things from other people, so I don't know what went wrong. All I know is I never heard from them again.
