Ok, i've gotta admit I like the Online Publications better that Hard Copy Ones because it's so damn random, you don't know who's going to end up reading you and they don't have to pay to do it. Also, you don't have to wait a million years to find out AND you don't have to pay for stamps. I would recommend all new writers and poets submit a bunch online first before spending sending snail mail submissions. Also, did you know online publications pay? Well, some do.
If you come out Hard Copy only, you sort of get locked away on a shelf and nobody really reads you. That's why literary magazines have a struggle making it and many owners/editors must resort to putting in a lot of ads in their pages even though they don't really respect the source advertising.
The best of both worlds is getting published online and then they come out with a GREATEST HITS hard copy and you're in it!Posted by Kirby at March 22, 2004 01:53 PM
