A bit of a quick message here, prompted by a series of tweets by Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Award winning author Ann Leckie:
Do not pay to submit to a publication. Period.
Alliteration Ink (including our periodical recompose) will not ask you to pay to submit, nor will we provide special treatment to those who have paid. This is in keeping with our crowdfunding policy.
Issue #3 of recompose will drop in the next day or two, followed closely by the annual. After that we will announce our plans for next year.
Those plans will include pro rates for short fiction and poetry. And they will NOT include any hint of pay-to-play.
