We acquire First World Serial Rights upon acceptance. After publication, all rights revert to you, the author. We ask as a courtesy that you refrain from republishing your poem until the monthly issue has moved to the archives—we'll be doing all we can to promote your work and hope that this is a team effort! We would also appreciate being mentioned as your work's first publisher in the case of a reprint.
