As someone who has tried and struggled to make a living as a freelance writer, what really gets me steamed about her response is how she defends her publication by saying that "all" of her writers work for free and that she "gives" them pieces for their portfolio. It is "editors" like this who make profits off of other peoples free writing that drive down fees for writers who struggle to make ends meet. We have to take assignments that pay pennies per word because there is always someone out there who is willing to write for free and thinks it's worth it. Not only is Griggs unaware of basic editorial issues her entire business practice is disrespectful to people who make a living off of writing.
