If submitting a work in print, please bring it to the library so that we may scan it and send the print copy back to you.

  • The Contributor Agreement. This describes the terms and rights under which works are submitted.. It only needs to be signed once.
  • The Consent Agreement. This must be submitted with each work. It sets the terms under which the work will be displayed in the repository.
