Copyright Notice

Any individual pieces submitted to Ta Voix remain the sole property of the contributor. However, in submitting your work to Ta Voix, you consent to its non-exclusive publication. This means that we have the right to publish it, though you may still have it published elsewhere. We will relinquish any work at the writer’s request, so please get in touch if you want your piece removed.

 

Please do not submit a piece where there may be a pre-existing copyright infringement. Instances where there may be an infringement include:

  • Submitting university/school coursework that has not yet been marked.

  • Submitting a piece where you have handed over the rights, such as having it exclusively published. Check your contracts/agreements with other companies before submitting.

  • Submitting a piece where you never solely owned the copyright, for example, collaborative, derivative or stolen work. Please, don’t submit stolen work – not cool. 
     

We ask that you take into account that we are a UK-based publisher. We would like to offer support to all aspiring creatives, and will offer feedback where we can. However, our anthology will be published in British English, and all works will be edited to UK English standards.

 

To any non-UK English speakers, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We want to give everyone the opportunity to receive feedback on their pieces, and will find out what works best for each individual.
