I ask this of just about all the writers I meet and I was wondering what the people here will say? Do you prefer one over the other? Why? Which format brings the most recognition and the most feedback? Does the more common "non-paying" status affect your decision on who to submit to? Does the networking possbilities of ezines add weight to your decision? Do readers feel there is a difference in status between the 2 formats? Any gripes about either styles of publication? These are all questions that alot of emerging writers want to ask writers who have already been out there a bit. Who have garnered much more experience in the trenches. It's a tough decision, finding the right publisher for your short stories! Hope you don't mind the brain-picking!
