Hey gene (or anyone else who might know)
Bit of a delicate matter but.......do you pay for magazine articles submitted by freelance writers that you end up printing. And if so how much? I ask because I have recently written an article (on wing chun) and am wondering about sending it in.
PM/email me if you dont want to discuss this on a public forum

Until he gets here, You can find some answers here. (http://ezine.kungfumagazine.com/about/guidelines.php) Compensation comes in a variety of forms here at KFM... you're first step might be to submit your articles . . .
. . . Good Luck . . . :cool:

... but DS answered well, first you need to submit something. ;) I'll add that if your into writing about MA for the money, keep your day job. Our policies and pay is listed in Writer's market, which I believe is still up-to-date. Our submission to publication is averaging around 6 months now, not that you asked this, but it would have been a good question.

so Gene what do you do for a living then? (to generate income)

... I write, but less than 50% of that is articles, the rest is technical. As assoc. publisher, I do all the dirty work that people never think about when running a magazine - buying paper, dealing with printing, managing freelancers, etc. Plus I manage this forum. As an employee of TC Media, I also work on our videos, websites and products, deal with new vendors, qcuire and develop products. The actual writing about martial arts part of my job, the romanticized 'fun' part, only makes up about two or three hours of my 40+ hour work week.
