Frequently asked questions
HOW DO I SUBMIT WORK?
All submissions go through the Google Form linked on the submissions page, unless otherwise specified.
CAN I SUBMIT TO MORE THAN ONE GENRE AT A TIME?
Yes, you may submit one manuscript per genre.
CAN I PITCH A PROJECT?
We will not be accepting pitches for Issue 2 of Over/Exposed.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I SUBMIT MY WORK?
Your work will first be made anonymous by our submissions editor, and then will go to the appropriate genre editor where it will be carefully read. Once a decision has been made, you will be notified. If it has been accepted, there may be minor edits which you will work with the genre editor on or your manuscript may be taken as it is.
WILL I BE PAID FOR MY WORK?
Yes! You will receive a small honorarium of CAD $15 via PayPal.
I’M NOT A GRADUATE STUDENT. CAN I STILL SUBMIT TO THE MAGAZINE?
Yes, although please do specify if you are a graduate student in your submission!
I MADE A MISTAKE IN MY SUBMISSION! WHAT DO I DO?
Mistakes happen! Our submissions assistant has a keen eye. If you forget to anonymize a submission, she’ll catch that for you. If you made an error in the submission form, drop a note in our contact form.
HOW WILL MY WORK BE PUBLISHED?
Due to the experimental nature of the magazine, all issues will be exclusively available for free online in order to be as accessible as possible to all readers.
MY EXPERIMENTAL WORK DOESN’T FIT INTO THE LISTED FILE GUIDELINES. CAN I STILL SUBMIT IT?
Yes! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss alternate submission arrangements.
WHAT STEPS ARE YOU TAKING TO MAKE YOUR MAGAZINE ACCESSIBLE TO READERS?
We use the One Click Accessiility plugin to enable a toolbar for custom accessibility settings. We also test our website’s accessibility using https://wave.webaim.org/. We don’t want to leave anyone behind, so we encourage users to flag any potential issues with us and we will correct them as soon as possible.
WHAT ABOUT THE LEGAL STUFF?
We purchase the first North American serial rights when we accept your piece. Upon publication in OVER/EXPOSED, the rights revert back to you.
