I expect this topic has already come up internally, but just in case it hasn't:  With SFWA's decision to raise the professional pay rate to 6 cents per word, is Escape Pod planning to increase with it to maintain their listing as a SFWA-pro publication?

I'm not saying they should, as that's a budget choice, but I would love if they could.  They're the only publication on the list that is primarily a podcast.

My understanding is that we intend to remain a pro-paying market.

So, raising to 6 cents per word?

My understanding is yes. Once this has been confirmed we'll make very sure people know.
