How do I submit?
Most submissions are received through Submittable.
How much does it cost to submit?
Some of our opportunities are free, but be sure to check the specs in the description on our submissions page as entry fees vary. We do our best to keep our reader fees reasonable but still need to cover the basic overhead costs of publication including a monthly ad fee on submittable, ISBN number and copyright registration, sub-contracted editors and graphic design, and other costs.
How many pieces can I submit?
The amount varies depending on the opportunity and type of work. Please be sure to check the specifications in the description in the post on Submittable.
When can I expect to hear back from Quillkeepers Press?
We receive a large volume of submissions, inquiries, and emails daily. Please allow up to six weeks after the deadline to hear back from one of our staff on the status of your submission.
Who owns the rights to the work once its selected and published?
The artist retains all rights to their work. If your work is selected, we will ask you to sign a nonexclusive rights acceptance contract that authorizes us to use your work in our/the publication.
Do you pay your contributors?
Unfortunately, we are not a paying market unless otherwise stated in the description of the opportunity. We hope to enter the paying market at some point soon.
Do contributors get a free copy?
Depending on the opportunity, contributors will receive a PDF version of the entire work(s). Please check the specs for the specific anthology on submittable for more details. If it is a publication for sale to the public any sales over the cost of production will be split between overhead of future projects and/or charity.
