OLD STORY SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
These are the legal terms for the submission of stories, the period of which has since ended.
You MUST read and agree to the following before making your submissions.
Please feel free to copy and paste the following agreement, or to download it using the link at the bottom of this page.
5150 Publishing, Inc. is the publisher of an upcoming book about the experiences of electronic music fans in the electronic music scene, or rave scene, tentatively entitled "THE RAVER STORIES PROJECT". The views and opinions printed in this book do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the book’s editors, staff, or any individual at 5150 Publishing.
I understand that my literary or artwork composition submitted to 5150 Publishing may be used for publication in THE RAVER STORIES PROJECT’s print, electronic book, and online editions as well as its associated advertising and promotion. I affirm that the literary or artwork composition is original and of my creative effort. Any opinions, attributions and other similar statements expressed are mine alone. I agree not to hold 5150 Publishing liable for any conflict, situation or issue of any type that may arise as a result of the publishing of my literary or artwork composition and to indemnify and hold harmless 5150 Publishing for any claim by a third party relating to my submission. I agree that I shall not be compensated financially for my work and that I may not revoke my submission.
If I am providing photographs of myself for submission in the book, I understand that it is my responsibility to provide 5150 Publishing with written permission from the image’s photographer (including contact information) to use said photograph, unless the image is a “selfie”. 5150 Publishing will provide appropriate photo credit in the book to the photographer. Neither I nor the photographer shall be compensated financially by 5150 Publishing, and I may not revoke my photographic material once submitted.
I understand as a contributor to THE RAVER STORIES PROJECT the legal ramifications of libel and slander. I therefore agree to, whenever possible, make every and all effort in the course of my storytelling not to mislead, misinform or make any untrue statements about any individual, organization or event. I agree not to hold 5150 Publishing liable for any conflict, situation or issue which may arise from any statements I may make which appear in the book, and to indemnify and hold harmless 5150 Publishing for the same.
If I have been interviewed by 5150 Publishing instead of submitting my own written material, I understand that sometimes edits need to be performed for purposes of clarity and refinement for better reading. I therefore allow 5150 Publishing to perform such edits to my interview footage as necessary, on the understanding that such edits will not significantly alter the general purposes or meanings of the original statements.
Contributors maintain the rights to their work, however, 5150 reserves the right to edit, modify, create derivative works from, print and reprint all submissions. This includes in the pages of THE RAVER STORIES PROJECT, the book’s web site, and all publicity, promotion and advertising, in perpetuity. If I wish to reprint the piece that ended up in the book, I must indicate to the new publisher (be it a magazine, book, web site, etc.) that the piece was first published by 5150 Publishing and include a credit line: “First appeared in THE RAVER STORIES PROJECT by 5150 Publishing”.
While 5150 Publishing strives to be error free, 5150 is not responsible for errors in content, reproduction or attribution in our publications. All literary, artwork and digital work are the self-expressions of those who created them and are not intended to represent the ideas of views of the staff at 5150 Publishing. I understand that I will be entitled to monetary damages only in the event of any dispute concerning my submission.
I am eighteen years old or older and am of legal age to submit material to The Raver Stories Project. If I am younger than eighteen, I agree to obtain my parents' or guardians' permission.
I give 5150 Publishing permission to publish my work. I acknowledge by signing this form that the work I have submitted is my original work, and that I have read, understand and agree to all information on this form.

Please include with your submission your complete contact information, including home address, email address and telephone number.
By making your submission along with the above statement, you are stating here that you have read and understand the release form posted on this web site, and that you agree to the terms within.
