Our stories are never behind a paywall, and we’d love for you to share them with your audiences. You can republish them for free under a Creative Commons license unless otherwise noted on the page.

Here are the ground rules:

You must credit Southerly. Ideally, you will use “[Author Name], Southerly” in the byline with a link to our site (southerlymag.org). If that’s not possible, please include a line at the top of the story that says: “This story was originally published by Southerly” and include a link to the article.

No republishing of photographs, illustrations, or graphics unless you have permission from our team. Reach out to inquire at: lgilpin@southerlymag.wpcomstaging.com

No editing the story, unless you’re reflecting changes in time, location and editorial style. For example, changing, “today” to “yesterday,” or Louisville to Louisville, Kentucky.

No reselling or syndicating our stories. You also can’t republish our work automatically or all at once; please select them individually. Use the Republication tool at the bottom of our stories.

Don’t sell ads against our story. You can publish it on a page surrounded by ads you’ve already sold.

Any site our stories appear on must have a prominent and effective way to contact you. If we send you a request to remove our story, you must do so immediately.

If you share our stories on social media, please tag Southerly. Also tag the reporter, if possible. We want our contributors to get credit for their work.
