well i just submitted a joke online. they say they will pay you if they will publish it on a the magazine. but then again i am not sure if they will pay me, but i have a 60% chance that they will publish it. well i know that the story is very funny everybody laughs about it. it's our winning piece. but i just want to know if anybody here had submitted something at reader's digest and got paid?
