F&SF imitates Baen Universe Slush-- but they charge for it
According to SFSite, the magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction is offering a writers' workshop, which will be limited to 100 entrants, and will be fee-based, and will lead to publication of the best stories in F&SF.

Whatever any publishing venue can do to improve the chances of new writers to get published in the science fiction and fantasy genres is wonderful, should be applauded, and we hope it is successful.

I would like to point out, however, that JBU Slush will continue, as it has for the past several years, to be open to all comers, and will continue to be free (no fees or charges), and the Introducing slot will continue to be offered to the best new writers.

JBU Slush is located at Baen's Bar. All you have to do to join the critique group is to join the Bar and start posting your stories and critiquing others. There are no hard and fast rules, other than what are in the JBU Slush FAQ, but it is customary to provide critiques if you post a story to be critiqued. Simultaneous submissions are permitted.

If that's true, I believe that violates the First Law of Publication: Money ALWAYS flows FROM the publisher TO the author, NEVER the reverse.
