Shock Totem Now A Pro-Paying Publication

If anyone is interested, we are now paying pro rates. Yes, there was a little drama preceding this decision, but I'm happy about it, to be honest.

Awesome! cheers

And on that note, I've just deposited the check from my real estate sale, so an infusion of cash will be on the way shortly.

Woo!!! And what's life without a little drama? You responded very professionally, btw. I would have sent an assassin in the dead of night, but therapy tells me that's the "wrong" thing to do.

So, have you seen a increase in the number of submissions since upping the pay rate?

We have. But as soon as we launched we got just as many. I assume it's because we're listed in the updates on Ralan, Duotrope, etc.

I will say, though, out of all the submissions we've gotten since going pro, nearly all of them have followed our guidelines pefectly. Prior to this, the majority were formatted wrong. Not sure if that says anything, but I noticed it. We even got a sub from a pretty popular author, and NY Times bestseller. Pretty cool.

Hey,

I was just wondering if you were looking for poetry, or if you're going to be publishing fiction and non-fiction only. The guidelines kinda lean toward all the above, but I don't want to waste your time if not.

Either way, it looks like this is going to be a good mag.

We're looking for poetry. Obviously our main focus is fiction, but if we're sent a great poem, then we'll accept it.
