“It was really easy to work with sub-Q. I loved how (and how much!) they promoted my piece, and it looked great. My glee at SILVER & GOLD being tagged “stylish” was easily matched by how pleased I was at the presentation of the pieces, and how slick the entire site is.”

sub-Q’s editorial team does a very good job of spotting issues and helping refine a piece, while maintaining respect for the author’s vision with the project. I would happily submit work for sub-Q again, and I’d also strongly recommend it to IF authors considering it as a venue for their work. Making any money at all from IF was not on my radar at all this year, and sub-Q proved me wrong on that count with terrifying swiftness.”

“Working with the sub-Q crew was inspiring, which, for me, is the best thing an editor can be. Tory is amazing in cheering people on while pushing them to go further and do the best work possible. I honestly can’t think of anything that could have been done differently—just stay this friendly, communicative and professional.”
