 Writer vs. Editor Relationship in a Nutshell

 Author:  Topic:  Posted:
Dec 24, 2001
I submitted "Barbie and Joe Go to War: Mr. Taliban Goes Banannas" to some web zine place because they asked for writers. Editor's email address is Jerkface - I like that. In keeping with the spirit of no illusions I signed my letter as Schmuck. Here's my anti-reject letter:

Hello Jerkface,it's his email title

I wasn't asking for a non-paying job slot. I was offering you the chance to carry good material. I'm not offering to produce assembly line writing.

The best thing you can do is tell me who you think would like my writing and point me in that direction.

Well, maybe next time, you can submit your story just as a diary entry on adequacy. This site operates in copyright protection mode by default . I am a copyleft person by default so i noticed the difference quite acutely. But at least, it fits your need to get your work reviewed by an audience with less concern of copyright infringement.

If you are in doubt, i suggest you to contact editors of this site directly.
