No, not the bright, shiny, scam spam that often lands in your mailbox – both virtual and physical.
Typically, emerging writers send out reams of work and their only payment is seeing their name beneath the work when an editor selects the by-product of their blood, sweat, and tears for publication.

But free access won’t pay the bills and creative content was the work product of someone, somewhere.

Paying Calls for Submission – Poetry, Prose, Art, etc.
