Is there any point at all to submitting to magazines that don't pay? Is there any value in getting "exposure" for your stories, or is it just a waste of time? Personally, I submitted one story to InD'Tale because I figured they weren't getting many submissions and I wouldn't have much competition. I assume the average publisher will have no clue what that is, meaning that saying I've got a prior publication in InD'Tale will be more likely to slightly help (at least I published something) than slightly hurt (I published in a non-paying market.) My goal is to get one more of these, then never touch non-paying markets again.
