RighTs

For all works we publish Spare Parts Lit will acquire First Electronic Rights and Non-exclusive Archival Rights.

All other rights remain with the author.

If you reprint your piece in a book or anthology, all we ask is that you mention it appeared here first.

We ask that submissions made to us be previously unpublished material [acceptions can be made if the work has since been removed due to magazine closure or if the work has significantly changed since publication - please email to discuss].

 

Should your work be accepted elsewhere while under our consideration, we ask that you shoot us an email to let us know that we've missed out! (We'll still be grateful to have been on your shortlist and very happy to congratulate you on your exciting news!)

Your work is your own, so should you wish to withdraw your submission at any time before publication you have every right to do so and we will respect your decision unwaveringly.

At Spare Parts Lit we believe that everyone has a voice and we do not believe in discrimination, we will therefore not consider any work which we deem to be offensive to any race, gender, ability, orientation or creed.  We also would ask that gratuitous sex and violence be kept out of our inbox.

We do not charge submission fees & we cannot pay our contributors.

Submissions Window

Since we are an independent Lit Mag our staff work completely voluntarily carving out time for submissions within the busy schedules of their own careers, studies and family. We can therefore only offer a limited but regular submission window and we keep this schedule in order to process the submissions we recieve in a timely fashion.

We will open for submissions between the 7th and the 17th of the month, every month and will publish our spares Quarterly.

If you aren't sure whether we are open for submissions just send us an enquiry email or check our socials.

To submit your spares for our consideration send your work to the appropriate email address following the formatting and length guidelines listed above.

Don't see a category which fits your Spare in our guidelines? We're looking for unique!
