plenty_showAccording to Gawker — and quite a few comments on the site — Plenty, the celebrated environmental magazine that folded last month, is having trouble paying writers for past stories. “A tipster tells us a group of stiffed contributors is rounding up legal counsel to go after the magazine for work the writers did on the last printed issue of the magazine and on the issue that was being filed and edited when Plenty folded last month after a funding round fell through in December,” said Gawker. “Apparently former editor in chief and founder Mark Spellun isn’t returning their emails.”

Apparently, it’s not just the writers getting screwed. Illustrators and web designers for Plenty have also been robbed of paychecks. “Unpaid (since October!) web designer who did random freelance updates for Plenty,” said Richard John. “Very disappointed in things (both the magazine folding and the not getting my check).”

Sounds like a shitty situation on both sides. Did you work for Plenty? Are you involved in the potential lawsuit?
