Excellent coverage of genres, news and publishing opportunities. Thankyou! Reviewed January 13, 2021

I love this magazine, and being in New Zealand find my access can be restricted. So finding it available through this site made my year last year. It's helpful, and being an early career writer, has helped in developing my craft and finding the right contacts.
So thank you!
