Title: EMBARK, An Online Journal For Novel Opening Pages: only!
Post by: Odd John on April 07, 2021, 10:05:25 PM
Kind of unusual. Asks for first 2,500 words of your novel opening pages only. Not a contest. I don't see anything about payment on the site, I'm guessing what you get is the exposure of online publication just. They do mention that they have Agent/readers.

I don't know how they get around the publishing industry convention of first rights once your pages are published. Most pubs/agents won't even look at something that's been previously published even if "only" online. Maybe there's an "excerpt" exception custom.
