Wolfian Press

Magazine Terms & Conditions

By agreeing to be published in one of our magazines you signify the acceptance of the following Terms and Conditions. Please make sure you have a read through of them. We have crafted them so as to be to the best advantage of both parties.


COPYRIGHT

For submitted fiction, articles, essays, poems and art work all copyright remains with the original author, who hereby gives the magazine, and Wolfian Press, the right to publish in the issue in question, to use extracts solely for the purposes of marketing and promotion, and to keep the issue in print as long as the Editor deems appropriate. Author photographs, book covers and small extracts may be placed on either the Wolfian Press' or AHF's websites for this purpose - you may request that we do not, if you wish.

Copyright is vested in the magazine, and with Wolfian Press, for articles, interviews and features that are created by the Editor. We will inform you as a courtesy if the article, interview or feature is to be used for purposes other than above. If we use your artwork in an article, we make no claims on it, and if we wish to use the article elsewhere we will contact you and request permission to include your artwork.

If a work accepted for publication in a magazine by Wolfian Press turns out to breach copyright the author, who retains sole copyright, shall be solely liable.

Pursuant to the above, the magazine will not accept fiction or derivative art works that would require a copyright release. Please note, that a recent ruling in the US has placed the original Sherlock Holmes stories out of copyright and we will consider fiction that is based on these, but note that anything subsequent to 1920 remains in copyright

As a publication each magazine published by the Wolfian Press has a duty to ensure, where possible, that articles are not libelous or actionable, and may reject articles on that basis, or request that changes be made. Our failure to do so does not imply liability, and the author shall be solely liable.


PAYMENT

Magazines published by the Wolfian Press do not pay for submissions, interviews or featured articles. All submissions, interviews and featured articles are accepted on this basis. All accepted authors and artists will receive a personal DRM-free copy of the e-magazine in the format requested (epub, mobi or pdf).

Magazines published by the Wolfian Press do not charge for inclusion, and unpublished first-time authors, essayists and artists are not only welcome but invited to submit. Non-payment does not extend to advertisements and sponsored features, which will be clearly marked.


DECISIONS

The sole right to decide which submissions are accepted for publication rests with the Editor. Anything accepted for publication will be published in the first issue with vacancies, and it is understood that this may not be the immediately pending issue. Exceptions will apply for themed issues where submissions are accepted well in advance and will be held over to be published in the intended special issue.

Acceptance does not imply a legal contract.

Invitations to submit a story, poem, article or other feature do not comprise a contract to publish. Confirmation will be made by the Editor after assessing quality and relevance of the received submission.


EDITING

Articles, Features and Reviews accepted for submission may be edited for sense or grammar. Where stories or poems are concerned, if we have queries about these, we will contact you before confirming acceptance for publication. Suggested edits may be supplied to the author, but will not be implemented in artistic works without mutual agreement.


SUBMISSIONS

We have an open submissions policy and you may send submissions at any time, regardless of the publishing cycle. All submissions will receive an acknowledgment and one of the following responses:- acceptance, request for changes, or rejection.

While we aim to reply within one week, the publishing schedule or heavy workload may mitigate against this, and this time should be seen as a best guideline, and not in any way a legal contract. If we have too many submissions for immediate issues, we may request that we file you as pending for inclusion in a later issue; it is up to you to accept this, or choose to resubmit at a later date.

Wolfian Press prefers all submissions to be made electronically by email, but messaging on social media is acceptable to query. The ability to send postal submissions is available on request (an address will be emailed to you). Telephone conversations can be arranged by email for agents or representatives of authors, artists etc to enquire about a feature for their client.

As Wolfian Prsss claims no copyright on submissions, we are receptive to simultaneous submissions, but please note that if it is agreed that we publish it, we do not guarantee to remove it afterwards if you require this for another publication you have submitted to. We will endeavour to do our best to comply with an author's wishes, but if the magazine has already been compiled then it may be impossible to remove something at late notice.

You may submit as many pieces you wish per issue, but if we decide to use any, we will choose which one, or ones, of those you submitted that we wish to feature. Our decision to publish some of the pieces in a bulk submission does not imply our acceptance of those we do not choose to publish.

As Wolfian Press and its magazines do not claim copyright on submissions, we will accept pieces that have been displayed previously on personal websites, bulletin boards, blogs, and other websites. We are open to Republishing, but please ensure, if submitting something classed as published elsewhere, that you have not already assigned copyright, or if you have that their rules allow republishing with, or without, acknowledgment.

Individual magazines may have specific email addresses to submit to, but any submissions made to editor@wolfianpress.com will be passed on to the relevant publication if that magazine is named in the Subject field (e.g. "Submission to Scimitar Magazine")

Submissions to demised titles will be passed on to the current magazine that they seem to be the best match for, but will not receive acknowledgment until accepted as a submission by the current magazine.
