The Community of Literary Magazines and Presses and Submittable, the cloud-based submission management platform, has agreed on a unique pricing plan for the use of Submittable by CLMP members.
The plan, which costs $29/month or $290/year, is priced at an 85% discount from Submittable's standard pricing, Mary Gannon, CLMP's executive director, said, and is available to any of more than 400 member publishers and publications of the organization. It comes just a little more than a year after Gannon took the torch from longtime CLMP executive director Jeffrey Lependorf, and on the eve of the 10th anniversary of Submittable, which was launched in Missounta, Mont., in 2010. Since its founding, Submittable has become the standard for digital submissions, and is used by publishers and publications including Critical Read, Fence magazine, Granta and the New England Review.
"CLMP is incredibly excited to offer this deal to our members, which perfectly aligns with our mission," Gannon said. "And we're really grateful to Submittable for spending so much time and so many resources working to make this happen. It speaks to their real commitment to the literary community."
Under the plan, up to 500 submissions to enrolled CLMP member publishers or publications via the Submittable platform will be accepted for free, as opposed to the 250 free submissions per month accepted under the standard pricing plan. Enrolled members will also have the option to add 250 submissions per month for an additional monthly payment of $25. The plan included eight team seats, or logins, by default, with additional seats priced at $2 per month, maxing out at 60. Customized plans negotiated by Submittable and CLMP members enrolling in the program will be discounted 20%.
"We're very excited to have established this partnership with CLMP," J.R. Plate, Submittable's v-p of partner channel, said. "The literary world is where Submittable got its start and it will always be a part of the company's DNA. Joining forces with CLMP means our two organizations can support one another, while also, most importantly, supporting the literary community and the wonderful work they create."
