WHETSTONE will now provide token payments to contributors.

We have been researching the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America requirements for venue membership. Getting WHETSTONE to qualify will be a long and incremental process. Two key components (there are several more) are that the venue must be *print* and it must *pay contributors.* We have received a lot of support from readers and submitters and are encouraged to start the multi-year journey of qualifying as an SFWA Market. This intention was is due to the fact that we have received a small donation that will allow us to provide a $10 token payment to contributors. This payment is not much and almost completely symbolic but it does allow us to accurately describe WHETSTONE as a paying market. Give us a few days to update the CFP on the webpage and elsewhere. Thanks for your continued support!
