Pay Bump

Beginning with Issue 8, we now pay $15 per accepted work. That’s the good news. The not so good news is that we are able to do this partly by cutting back the number of works accepted for each issue.

The first seven issues of Exist Otherwise included between 20 and 25 works per issue. The plan was to cap it at 20, but our enthusiasm for the work we’ve been receiving meant we’ve been accepting more than that. Unfortunately, our enthusiasm had a down side in that it’s been more work preparing each issue than we had planned for. The September issue was particularly stressful and it made me realize I need to manage my time more carefully. The new goal is to publish approximately 15 works per issue. In addition to being more manageable, this number allows us to increase the “per work” rate, and still stay within our budget.
