Oh jeez, Black Warrior, you guys are super badasses. I gotta say, though, I don't sub to pay-to-sub places. I absolutely get that it's hard for mags, and I donate to tip jars for places all the time...but with the odds being as they are, it gets expensive fast to pay to sub. And there's a barrier element that I find to be a bummer. Black Warrior Review is free for Black, Indigenous, or incarcerated writers, which is awesome! But I still don't like submission fees as a concept.
