All rights of the accepted stories are retained to their respective authors, but all stories are ready for our archival.

Simultaneous and Multiple Submissions

-We accept simultaneous submissions (the same manuscript that is submitted to different publications at the same time). But DON’T FORGET to inform us if ever your story has been accepted elsewhere. We will surely be happy to congratulate you. Message us at: storppymag [at] gmail [dot] com — with a subject line: WITHDRAW: Title of the Story

Reprints & Reposts

We accept stories that are previously published and are posted on other social media sites, as long as the rights are fully owned by the author. Please indicate in your submission, whether it is for a repost or reprint and from where.

Terms and Conditions

Upon submitting the manuscript, the author/submitter automatically claims his/her ownership to the said story. Any kinds of violation, such as plagiarism and copyright infringements, etc. would be a full responsibility of the author/submitter, and NOT of our team. Upon publication to StorPpy, the full rights of the story will be retained to its respective author. He/she is free to submit it to other publications, but must mention the StorPpy as its previous home. Stories that are published under StorPpy will not be removed or deleted from our archives, as long as we exist, unless for some special cases and circumstances, or if we receive a request of deletion from the author.

We will respond to the authors of the accepted manuscripts weeks after the deadline. Upon receiving an acceptance email, the author should reply us with his/her full name, byline/pen name, and a brief author’s biography, written in a third person.
