|Earl the Squirrel's Rule #69|
Me too. I have no issue with subscription or contest entry fees but submission/reading fees are a non-starter. As Bill Maher might say: "New Rule: You don't get to defend submission fees and then say that poetry isn't dead."
This is only one editor removed from the infamous Poetry.com scam. That editor now has more incentive to find writers than readers. A century of experience has taught us what to expect when this is the case.
