I contacted Editor-in-Chief Mathew Cutter (fitting name, for an editor) with a couple of questions and he replied the next day. Rate of Pay is between 3-5 cents per word, dependent on the freelancer's experience and the quality of the writing. The turnaround from when you pitch an article (and it's accepted), and are expected to have it written, is between 60-90 days.

Issues 1-4 are currently available in PDF on the Pinnacle Entertainment Group Inc. site (here) as well as with One Book Shelf (drivethrurpg & rpgnow here, or click on the product image). As of yet, Savage Worlds Explorer, doesn't have a dead tree version.

Best of luck to submitters!
