Well letting them into the paid partner program leaves writers like you and I, trying to compete with the likes of them, which hardly feels fair.
Corporations worth millions don’t need the money the make here, a fraction as much as the independent writers do. I have nothing against the publications themselves and at the end of the day, it’s just business I guess. Just wasn’t always this way. Those are the main changes I was referring to. I’ve never submitted to the monthly magazine so I can’t help you there. Thanks for reading and responding though.
