baen bar -- astounding slush

To be depressed, or not depressed. Ah, the eternal conundrum and/or struggle.

Baen Bar's "astounding slush" is a slush/open workshop process. Post a story, crit others, and maybe, just maybe, your story will be selected by the wise editors as their "newbie pick".

They're doing innovative things with royalties... on magazines, and magazine e-editions, single-story downloads, etc. All things I wanted to hit the market with six months ago with my own magazine. Worth doing still? Probably. Now there's a pro market to follow in the footsteps of.

Posted maybe six crits of others' stories. Posted Unicorn Hunt.

Waiting response...

their own guess at conventional wisdom says give up if it's not selected within three months. a crit would be nice.
