      Trelani@SoFundamental.com is actually an e-mail address. Send your writing as an attachment to that e-mail address.

    Greetings Trelani,

    Thank you for your response. I have just one other question, please: does the writer retain copyright of their work, or does the publication assume it for accepted/published pieces? This is all rather new to me.

    Thanks,
    Stacy

    1. The publication will retain copyrights. However, if you wanted to reuse the piece in the future, that’s totally permissible with proper credits (originally published in 2015 in Songs of Yemaya: Stories of Black Womanhood).

    Hi, it says that subissions will not be considered without a contract. Does that mean that a contract has to be signed before sending the subissions, if so where and how?
    Or that submissions will be accepted only subject to signing a contract?

    1. Greetings, Maxi! Submit first. If accepted, then the contract is sent. Thanks, Sis.

    Hey just wondering if you are accepting any artworks? I know its late to ask, but if so, I would like to submit a piece. Although it will be after the deadline. Let me know if you’re interested in original Yemaya artwork. Many thanks. I am submitting my written work very shortly.
    Bless,
    Sauda
