Chill Subs Promorando #3

The Beatles were wrong. Money can buy you love. Apparently they never tried to get love in the literary community.

We’re tired of every writer site forcing folks to pay if they want their work promoted.

So, we’re doing it for free. Because: fuck it. Everyone deserves love–not everyone has the money to buy it.

These promotions are completely random. The only requirement is to have a Chill Subs page that’s fully up to date. The more work you have up, the greater the likelihood you’ll get promoted.1

1. yeah, yeah we know this is also about getting people to fill out more of their work on their profiles and suggest more listings but–y’know, two things can be true? I know, you hate it when you see something like this and think: aw, they’re doing this for free? What kind souls! Then they say, “so make sure your profile is all filled out on our site,” and you think: Oh, those selfish fucks, I knew it! And then you feel a little cheated because they say it in such a sly way…or maybe I over think these things and nobody cares because two things can be true: give everyone a promotion sundae while getting to eat the cherries on top ourselves.
