The Legal Stuff

Superlative retains first rights for publication and reserves the right to publish work from the journal.

By submitting work to Superlative, writers are agreeing that they are happy for Superlative to publish their work in the current issue. When a submitted piece is selected by our editors, contributors are contacted via the email address they used to submit (in October) to confirm acceptance. Contributors are then contacted again (later in October) and provided with a proof copy of their work, formatted as it will be printed, to confirm everything is as it should be. If contributors are non-responsive, Superlative still reserves the right to publish the piece under the writer's name.

Writers may contact us at any time up until the end of October to withdraw a piece of work. After that, we will be unable to withdraw work, as the final proofs will be with the printer.

When copies of the journal are purchased, we always aim to fulfil orders within 48 hours. All orders are securely wrapped in eco-friendly packaging, and posted First Class via Royal Mail. Email confirmations of dispatch are always provided but, beyond that, unfortunately, we do not have any control over how long postage may take (especially abroad), and whether journals are lost in transit.
