Work for Hire

From time to time, we may specifically invite certain work product to meet a specific need. For example, we may solicit or commission a short-form work for The 3288 Review or a cover for a novel or cutlines for a photo essay. Although we are willing to negotiate on licensing and rights, our default position for work we invite or solicit according to our specification is that it’s work for hire, with permanent assignment of all rights to the publisher for text, or a permanent non-revocable (but non-exclusive) license to art and photography used for book covers.

Work that’s submitted by authors through our normal query process, and which wasn’t written at our invitation and according to our specification, is not considered work-for-hire and is treated as normally licensed work.
