    LampLight Magazine / Apokrupha

    Here's the submission guidelines:

    The rights section:

    "The quarterly is published as print and ebook, and at the end of the year all the quarterlies are bound together in an annual collection. We are asking for non-exclusive, worldwide, serial rights to your work for both electronic and print. We want to publish it, we donít want to own it."

    I'm planing to submit a short story to them. So, should I be asking them how long they have these rights for? Anything I should be careful with? What else should I be asking?

    Non-exclusive rights are typically granted for an extended period of time because they don't impinge on your ability to publish it elsewhere (assuming the elsewhere is not demanding exclusive and/or first rights). You should ask how long they intend to keep the individual volumes and the collections for sale, if you can request to have your story removed after a certain length of time.

    "The 'Touch' trilogy is a masterclass in world-building, tells a fascinating story with economy and intelligence, and does so with fine, pared-down prose." - Eric Brown, author of The Fall of Tartarus

    "I loved this novella series. Brooding, earthy, whispering to us with a delicious mood of creeping dread while filling the heart with a pure sense of wonder." - Charles de Lint, author of The Onion Girl
