If you live on Vashon Island, Washington and are an artist of any
kind, then send in your works! 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. And also we ask that you
keep in mind our overall mission at KotaPress is to provide an expressive
arts outlet and respite for those who have experienced grief. So works
need to be sensitive to issues about grief, loss, and healing -- even
if they aren't specifically about loss & healing.
- Writers of any genre: Send your ideas, essays, articles, suggestions,
poems, whatever, to us here at Kota-- please cut and paste into the
body of an email-- no attachments will be opened nor acknowledged.
Send works and your bio ALL IN ONE EMAIL PLEASE to firstname.lastname@example.org
with VASHON SUBMISSION in the subject line of your message.
- Artists of any genre: Send an email with your bio and ideas
of what you'd like to showcase here to email@example.com
with VASHON SUBMISSION in the subject line of your message. This
is open to artists of any genre, but you have to be able to show your
work in a digital format (obviously). We're glad to work with you to
make that happen, so email with your submission idea today!
- It can take anywhere from one day to two months to hear back from
us. But we will get word to you.
- Please, please, please send along a 25 to 75 word bio with
your submission-- we'll be using this in publication. If you don't send
it with your submission, then you won't get a bio listing.
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!
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.
