I sent this magazine 2 articles. After sending them I didn't receive a response for a week or two so I wrote asking about the status. The message below is what I received in return. They didn't ask for revisions, just sent this. Honestly, this company is unprofessional and down-right rude. I don't mind criticism, but this is certainly far from it. As far as them accusing me of being rude-I am not. I am professional in all transactions. Maybe because I wasn't conversational they thought that was rude. Also, they were only willing to pay $25/article. I should have known. I advise any writer to stay far away.
Here's the message from Reveal Magazine:
Honestly, you seem demanding, presumptive and hard to work with. I'm hiring
people to work for me. I work for no one. Your tone is not only rude, but it
is very un creative.
I'm not sure if you even read about the magazine based off the articles you
submitted. Your writing reads like a college creative writing assignment
that is just trying to be 1000 words. I'm not sure if based off your lack of
talent, you have ever even opened a magazine and looked at how articles are
Better luck on your next assignment. I've deleted your articles and thrown
your bills in the trash. Again... if you would have read the assignment
criteria, you would see the first two articles are not billable.
