    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    Contrary to what you've read in all the writing manuals, we'd prefer it if you don't double space your work - particularly if you do this by pressing 'Return' at the end of each line. We will copy and paste your work (after any necessary editing) directly into the webpage, and if your manuscript is double-spaced, then this just means more work for us! And we're lazy. email as an attachment .doc, .rtf .txt

  • Author's rights

    writers and artists retain their rights to their work if accepted for publication (but see the paragraph on eBooks). We also provide eBook editions of the webzine, which will be provided for free for five days on, and then for a nominal charge. By submitting work to Schlock! Webzine, you are giving us the rights to make your work available in eBook format. (This is a proviso made by Kindle if we are to provide the webzine free of charge). You are giving Schlock! Webzine first electronic publication rights, so we are the first to publish your story. We do not own your story: after it appears on Schlock! Webzine, you can sell it without our approval as long as you inform potential buyers that it has been published elsewhere. [PLEASE NOTE: Some editions are archived in PDF format available for free from a separate archive website].
