Sydney Wisdom of the Day: Reading Fees


People ask, "why do you charge a reading fee for aspiring clients?"

This is simple.  I charge reading fees for things I do not want to read and do not want to represent.  Why would I touch them otherwise?  Actually, it should probably be called a "sitting fee," because that's what I do with these submissions, sit on them.

I mean literally, I sit on them.  I'm a cat, and my slush pile is the highest spot in the room.

People ask, "why should I pay you a reading fee to take my submission."

Okay, you've stumped me on that one.

Now shut up, and get me tuna!
