  • Submissions policy
    Ducts accepts rolling submissions for fiction, poetry, essays, memoir, humor, and art. We pay each author $20 per published piece. Illustrators who provide art to accompany a published piece receive $10 per image. For written work, Ducts retains exclusive rights for 6 months after publication (meaning that the work cannot be published elsewhere). After the 6 months are up, the contributor may publish their work anywhere they like, although Ducts respectfully requests that if a piece is later reprinted, it will include an acknowledgment of first publication in Ducts. Only original, previously unpublished submissions are considered.
