FAQ

 
 

 

1. How often is the website updated with new content?

Monthly issues are posted on the first of each month and are typically composed of a combination of unsolicited and commissioned content. Finalsts for our prompt competitions can also be found in their respective categories, however there is no specific schedule to their postings as competitions are announced at random times during the month (see question #5). 

2. Where else can content from Chaleur Magazine be found?

Content published in Chaleur Magazine can be found on our website and in our quarterly print issues. Additionally, readers can follow the Chaleur Magazine Apple News channel where esssays and stories are posted. Promotional excerpts from different creators' works are shared on our Instagram (@chaleurmagazine) and Facebook (Chaleur Magazine) pages.

3. How can I be notified of new content and Chaleur Magazine related news?

Following us on on our Instagram page (@chaleurmagazine) is the best way to keep up with new developments. Followers of our Apple News channel can elect to recieve notifications when new content is posted. We also provide the option to subscribe to our email newsletter, however notifications from the newsletter can be sporadic.

4. What rights does Chaleur Magazine have on the content they publish?

All content submitted for our online monthly issues are published under one-time non-exclusive publication rights. Creators featured in our online monthly issues are free to submit and publish their work wherever they choose, and feature credit to Chaleur Magazine is appreciated but not required. For 36-hour prompt competition winning content and accepted submissions for our print issues, Chaleur Magazine compensates creators for first serial publication rights. We do not accept previously published work for our prompt competitions or print issues. After publication, creators are free to circulate their work anywhere else but are required to credit Chaleur Magazine as the original publisher. 

5. How do your 36-hour prompt competitions work?

Our 36-hour prompt competition is our favorite way to interact with our readers. At any point in the month, any point in the day, a new prompt competition can be announced on our Instagram page (@chaleurmagazine). From the moment the prompt is released online, any of our followers can submit work to be considered. Thirty-six hours after the prompt is released, our online submission form closes and our editors begin the selection process for a set amount of finalists. Finalists have their work published on our site and voted on by our Instagram followers. A set amount of finalists with the most votes win the established prize for that competition. Visa Gift Cards are our most frequent prizes.

6. Is Chaleur Magazine a for-profit magazine?

No, we are a not-for-profit magazine with the goal of sharing content that moves, shakes, and stirs while spotlighting new and emerging creators. The reading fee charged for submissions are accepted as voluntary non-tax-deductible donations. Collecting reading fees helps operating costs and funding our 36-hour prompt competitions.

7. What happens when I purchase Chaleur Magazine's print issues?

The proceeds from each of our print issues is donated to an organization of our Instagram followers' choice. Each quarter we allow our followers to suggest an impactful organization that could benefit from our donation. Because of this, each individual purchase of our print issue is a conscious agreement that a portion of its proceeds will be given to the elected organization. We offer the option of yearly subscriptions.
