As Spinebind is a new publication, we are unfortunately unable to pay writers the market rates; however, we want our writers to know that their work is both valuable and valued. This is why we offer a paypal payment of $5.00 AUD per piece to our successful writers, as a symbol of our acknowledgement of the craft. Until we are able to pay our writers the market rates, Spinebind will remain a not-for-profit magazine. All writers and artists keep the first-hand rights to their work.
