A caution to children's writers

This from Funds for Writers - a newsletter by C. Hope Clark - January 11/09 edition:

"Cobblestone Publishing is unable to pay writers at present."

She and her grandson prepared a piece for their Appleseeds magazine, it was published in December but when she requested payment, was told not to expect payment in the immediate future because of 'difficult financial times.' In fact, they could not say when any writers would be paid.
