Hello! I recently found out about this wonderful company called short-edition which puts up little short story dispensers around the world for people to pick up free things to read. In my library, we’ve got one that has buttons for 1 MINUTE, 3 MINUTES, and 5 MINUTES; the length depends on which one you click.
I would love to submit to them–I write a lot of short stories, and they pay $125 in advances for each accepted one–but I suppose my “too good to be true” sensors are tingling, and I want a second (or third, or fourth) opinion. Take a look at these terms and conditions. Are permanent exclusive rights too much to ask?
Thank you to anyone who can help me out! I promise I’m usually very good at reading comprehension, but when it comes to all this jargon I’ve got no idea… I’m mainly asking about Sections 3 & 4.
