Blackbook Not Paying Its Contributors

Just spreading the word from the NY Post that Blackbook magazine is stiffing its freelancers and editors.

"Contributors to the mag and its supplemental city guides are owed amounts up to $6,250, and they wonder if they'll ever see it. The black hole of BlackBook is so deep, writers are calling former editor-in-chief Aaron Hicklin to beg for their money.

"Hicklin tells Page Six's Corynne Steindler he often saw BlackBook cut checks for writers, and then cancel them after they were sent. "It was mortifying as an editor," Hicklin said."
