So here's an exchange I had with Instinct Magazine. Generally I appreciate exposure and enjoy working with editors who are interested in my work. However, Instinct Magazine repeatedly poaches the work of others without first seeking permission, so I thought it'd be an interesting exercise to call them on it. In retrospect, I'm not proud of the tone I took in my follow-up letter and would reign it in the next time, but judging from Instinct's executive online editor's response, it seems to have hit its mark in lieu of having a team of lawyers to send threatening letters on my behalf. We'll see if that small check winds up in the mail. Otherwise, to be continued!...
