Royalties

We pay royalties to all authors featured in our printed zines. Unfortunately, we are unable to extend this offer of payment for work solely featured online but if we can find a way to change this in the future, we’ll let you know.

We’ll pay an author royalty fee of 20%* for every zine sold. This fee will be shared among all contributing authors featured within the publication. We’re a small outfit and we’re not going to help you to retire, but every little helps.

Zines will have a maximum cover price of £5 for print copies and £3 for digital downloads.

Royalties will be paid bi-annually, in the first weeks of January and July respectively.

All contributing authors will receive one complimentary copy – royalties will not be paid on these copies.

10 copies of each zine will be set aside for promotion and reviews – royalties will not be paid on these copies. Where applicable, we will distribute free digital copies to gain reviews or for promotional purposes. These editions will not be available for a sale and so no royalties will be paid on these copies.

All contributing authors will automatically receive a 10% discount on any future zines purchased.

Any author submitting work for consideration, either for the website or a printed zine, will also automatically receive a 10% discount on any future zines purchased. In short, anyone who has ever taken the time to submit their writing to us can claim a 10% discount.

* This percentage has been reduced to ensure future issue can break even. The original royalty fee of 25% will be honoured for all authors included in ‘One’.
