TERMS and LEGAL
SILVERTHOUGHT ONLINE TERMS:
Silverthought Online purchases one-time nonexclusive electronic rights for works we accept (and nonexclusive electronic reprint rights for reprints we accept). All work published by ST Online remains solely the property of the original author. Writers may withdraw submissions from the ST Archive at any time for any reason, but please allow up to 30 days for removal of your work from Silverthought.
Submissions to Silverthought remain the sole property of the author, with all rights intact, including the right to withdraw the piece for any reason with sufficient notice. All submissions to the Online and Print divisions are kept in the strictest confidence and our interns operate under binding Non-Disclosure Agreements.
SILVERTHOUGHT ONLINE COMPENSATION:
Compensation is via PayPal and is disbursed mid-month within 30 days of publication on ST Online. Compensation is non-transferable. These compensation rates do not apply to any work that appeared on ST Online before 10/01/2010.
SILVERTHOUGHT PRINT COMPENSATION:
Print publications (novels and single-author collections) are contracted and paid as a percentage of profits from sale. We currently do not offer advances on royalties. Email the editor for further print contract details.
We occasionally assemble print anthologies of pieces that appear on the site; further guidelines will be provided to writers whose work we'd like to include in a collection and these will be additionally compensated for print rights under a separate contract from our Print division.
