Compensation:


Does WORDLY pay contributors?

WORDLY is pleased to be able to offer a small payment per piece to contributors of our print magazine.

While we accept pieces for WORDLY Magazine from everyone, we’re only able to pay contributors that fit the following conditions:

Front Cover Artists must be a Deakin student.

Contributors must be a Deakin student and be a Deakin Writers Club member. You can become a Deakin Writers Club member here.

Due to our funding arrangements with Deakin University and DUSA, we are currently unable to pay WORDLY Online contributors.

If you have any queries or concerns about this, please email wordlymagazine@gmail.com


What are the rates of pay for contributors?

It’s a small payment that varies with our funding arrangements, and is currently $20 per published piece. The pay is the same across all pieces, regardless of form and space taken up.

The only exception to this is the artwork chosen for our cover, which has a payment of $50.


Does WORDLY pay staff/the WORDLY team?

WORDLY is fortunate in being able to provide a small payment to the production team of WORDLY Magazine, our print magazine.

In order to be paid, WORDLY staff must be a Deakin student and a Deakin Writers Club Member.
The Designer has slightly relaxed requirements, and just has to be a Deakin student to be paid.

Payment is made per edition, so a team member must have worked on an edition to be paid for it.

Due to our funding arrangements with Deakin University and DUSA, we are currently unable to pay our team for WORDLY Online.

If you have any queries or concerns about this, please email wordlymagazine@gmail.com


How is payment made?

Payment is made directly into your bank account from DUSA.
Following the launch of the relevant edition, an email will be sent out with forms for you to complete. These forms must be completed and returned by the due date for payment to be completed.

If you have any queries or concerns about this, please email wordlymagazine@gmail.com


WORDLY Magazine:


Is WORDLY a printed, physical magazine?

WORDLY Magazine is printed. You can see each of our previously published editions online here, but they also exist in physical paper form!


How can I get a copy?

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we will be sending out editions to people interested in them. Editions are being sent out on scheduled dates, as opposed to on order.
Please email wordlymagazine@gmail.com to be sent copies.

Until restrictions ease, we are currently only able to supply copies of ‘Atmosphere’ and ‘Power’ editions.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
