Another letter was sent to our writer's group. It seems to be connected to a legitimate college out of rural Vermont, so not necessarily a scam, but I have my doubts anyway.
In the first place they specify in their guidelines that it is free to submit your work. That shouldn't be something you have to specify.
The fact that they e-mailed our website specifically and not any of the authors who are a part of the group bothers me. Our group could be a front for drug smuggling for all they know, but they're asking us for unpaid content nonetheless. It's a teensy bit insulting when you consider that many of the writers in my group have genuine book deals and writing credits to their name.
Anyway, I just wanted to throw this out there to see if anyone else has received their e-mails, or has any insights.
