We publish new and reprinted original work. We pay $0.30/word up to $390 for new writing, $70 for a single poem or $180 for three poems, $40 for reprint stories or essays, and $20 for reprint poems.We rely on funding and donations and have introduced a $3.00 AUD submission fee to ensure our content remains accessible and open access.
