I have a new story out in the second issue of this fine online journal. It’s called “Secret World” and is one of my Claudia stories.
A few things of note about Sotto Voce. From the start, they made a commitment to pay writers. It’s not a lot, but it’s more than a token amount, and they’ve already upped their rate from Issue 1. They also have a feature that allows readers to vote for what should be included in their print anthology. Finally, instead of the standard form rejection, they send writers brief notes from each editor/reviewer who read the piece.
Journals that show such respect for writers deserve our support. So check them out; vote for your favorite stories & poems; and order the print anthology when it comes out.
Finally, read a fascinating interview with editor Emily Thorp on Sotto Voce‘s unique review process, and some very humbling number crunching.
