I was reading along a Google search thread which I generated in my quest to find out how much it actually costs to use Submittable if you’re a literary journal (best info: $180 to $1100 a year, depending on how many subs you get) where I turned up this really thought-provoking blog by Jane Friedman, which builds on mine of last week, when I admitted to become willing to pay for subs. The essence of Jane’s blog post is:
You totally should read this. In fact, if you haven’t, probably a lot of the questions you’re asking yourself and the writing universe are answered on this well-developed blog by a magazine and book publishing insider (worked at both Writer’s Digest and Virginia Quarterly Review). Talk about working both sides of the fence.
Jane also offers a writer’s coaching service that looks pretty reputable, and the charges are right there in digital print, no request form needed. Best blog find of the week, perhaps month. Thank you Jane.
