Classifieds • Caveat emptor! Poets & Writers Magazine is unable to check all claims made by advertisers. Readers should beware of publishers who charge, rather than pay, an author for publication; publishers who do not pay for publication, even in copies; publishers who require a purchase before publication; and contests that charge high reading fees. The magazine recommends that you see the publication and submission guidelines before submitting a manuscript; if you have questions regarding an advertiser’s commitment to publication, please contact the advertiser directly.
