I wrote an article about using puppets in play therapy for autistic children
and sent it to [NAME REDACTED] magazine. It received an enthusiastic
response from the editor, who said they wanted to publish it.
No mention of payment in the e-mail.
I wrote back to politely point this fact out and got back a response:
“I’m afraid we don’t offer monetary compensation to authors and if you want to withdraw your submission because of this, we completely understand.”
I’m so glad they understand. I withdrew the piece.
