Multiple Submissions
Multiple submissions (submissions of more than one work) are fine. Send us what you’ve got!
Simultaneous Submissions
Simultaneous submissions (submitting work you’ve already submitted–or are planning on submitting–elsewhere) are fine too.
Please just be sure that if your submission gets accepted elsewhere, you contact us at submissions@qommunicatepublishing.com to withdraw it from consideration for Hashtag Queer: LGBTQ+ Creative Anthology, Vol 4.
Reprints
Reprints will NOT be considered.
Rights
We are seeking First English Anthology Rights and First World Anthology Rights in print and ebook formats.
NOTE: These rights only allow the material to be used in the anthology and its reprints, and the writer retains all rights to their work not specified here (i.e. in the contract), including copyright to their work.
We are also seeking, for all material, Non-exclusive Excerpt Rights (for the purposes of promoting the Anthology on the website).
Compensation:
Please note: as of 2020 we have changed our payment model.

For all anthologies to be published after January 1, 2020, we will no longer be paying $5 per printed page. Instead we will be instituting a royalty system, whereby we share a book’s profits with all of that book’s contributors.

Payment for writers and artists contributing to any anthologies will published will be a split of the net income from sales of that book with the publishers and other contributors, as follows:
Net income = Retail price – costs of printing and distribution
Printing and distribution costs vary depending on which of the two printers/distributors we use (Amazon & Ingram) processed the sale.
Of the net income from each book, the Publishers will keep 50% and the other 50% will be split evenly among all the writers and artists who contributed work to the book. Generally, each of our anthologies have between 14 and 40 contributors.
Because we are a tiny company, royalties will be calculated once per year on the anniversary of the book’s publication date and payments along with documentation of sales will be distributed within 30 days afterward.
If you have already submitted work to us for an upcoming anthology, and you wish to withdraw that piece from consideration due to this change in payment structure, just let us know.
