The website doesn't say what format you like submissions in (.doc, .rtf, or in the body of the mail instead of as an attachment). Could you please clarify?

Also, is this a new webzine or do you have examples of previous editions that can be seen / purchased?

Hi Catadmin,

Thanks for your interest.

"Onirismes is a new bilingual webzine (...)". So we're sorry we won't be able to show you any previous issue at the moment.


The website doesn't say what format you like submissions in (.doc, .rtf, or in the body of the mail instead of as an attachment). Could you please clarify?

We don't have any particular requirement concerning the files we receive, as long as it is attached. DOC and RTF are fine, as well as TXT, unprotected PDF, and Open Office documents (ODT). We take care of the text formatting ourselves before publishing.

The website mentions that you are looking for an English specialist. Is this a paid position or volunteer. What information do you need as part of the application process?

Thank you.

Hi Debbie,


I'm sorry to say the team is entirely composed of volunteers at the moment, myself included. I hope this will change, but I don't expect it to happen any time soon.

If you're still interested in the opportunity we're offering, I'd suggest you send us an email with your references (relevant courses or jobs, the reasons you'd like to join us) and any question you might have for us.


thank you for your interest,
Julien

Hi Julien,

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. The request has been crossed out on your website, so I assume I've missed another opportunity. Perhaps the timing wasn't right, anyway. I'll have to settle for submitting some work.

Hi Debbie,

We'll let you know when we need another first reader. We've had more offers for help that we imagined (which is great!).

We've received a fair number of submissions, but we're still seeking more stories, so we'd certainly be happy to read yours (or anyone else's).

-Julien

Peg, the guidelines do say "send ONE text at a time" so I assume they want to see a single poem or story submission.

What I found a little unclear was the rights being purchased: the guidelines say they claim "exclusive world electronic rights (text and audio)", which AFAIK pertains only to piece in the language it's submitted in. Translation rights would not fall under those claims. Yet the guidelines also say that selected stories and poems will be translated (from English to French, or from French to English) for publication on the webzine. Are translation rights negotiated separately for selected works?

I've got a poem I can submit (in English). Should you choose to accept my poem, will I need to open a paypal account?
