Writers : A Call For Submissions
If you live on Vashon Island, Washington and are a writer of any age, in any genre, then send in your works for consideration! We simply wish to feature and highlight all the talent that this island hosts, so there is no specific theme. But this is a "family oriented" site, so we probably won't publish works that are explicitly violent or erotic.
We will ask for one-time, electronic rights and also the archive rights to publish your work in the Journal. ARCHIVE RIGHTS means the right to archive works in the context of the issue in which works first appeared and to offer that archived issue for as long as our site is up online. If you accept our offer to publish your works, then you accept that we are going to offer your works in our archive indefinitely. We will not remove works from the archive!
Once the issue is up online, all rights revert back to you so that you may go on and publish this work again in the future wherever you wish. We ask that you give KotaPress credit as a previous publisher, but that is a courtesy, not a requirement.
