Samjoko purchases first worldwide English-language serial and electronic rights from the date the contract is signed and paid for up until 2 months after publication date.
After initial publication date, Samjoko Magazine will maintain non-exclusive rights to publication. Paid submissions must not use the intellectual property of any other author or company.
Just To Clarify: your work will not appear, and will not have appeared, in any other available format (blogs and public forums included) until 3 months after the release date of the story in Samjoko Magazine. After 3 months, we’ll retain ongoing non-exclusive distribution rights, but you can self-publish your work or sell your story to another paying market.
Each piece we acquire will be published on samjokomagazine.com in an electronic seasonal issue. We may also excerpt pieces for promotional purposes. The author retains all other rights.
We pay up to 60 days after publication through PayPal only. Payment projected to happen sooner. Current payment is $20 per accepted submission, though we hope to increase this with greater support from readers.
Feel free to query after 2 months of submitting. Cover letter should have contact information, PayPal email, and author’s bio less than 100 words. Email subject should read: [SUBMISSION: Title of Story (word count) by Author’s Name]
Example – SUBMISSION: The Grey Wolf (3200) by Lauren Hill
