I've started to send my work out to magazines and journals and have been using the Writers Market to find places. About two weeks ago I sent a story into New Mirage Quarterly(which I found in Writers Market) and was excited when today I got an acceptance letter saying they will publish my story. Then I read down to the bottem where it said I must purchase a copy of the issue and sign up for full membership in their group at a cost of $70. It also said that if I do not become a full member my story will not be published but may be submitted later for possible publication. Is this a scam? I don't trust a journal that makes a writer pay $70 to have their work appear and who replied so quickly. I think they accept anything that is sent to them as long as the writer pays them to have it published. Any thoughts on whether I should pay the money or forget it?
