Luxe Beat Magazine publishes a monthly digital magazine that is subscription-based and offered in print, on-demand. Additionally online articles are posted daily. New content will be reviewed for inclusion in the digital edition and if selected will be held until the appropriate digital edition is released. That same article will be posted online after the digital version is released. Not all content that is selected will be included in the digital publication and may only be promoted on the website.
The marketing team at Luxe Beat Magazine makes every effort to promote each writer’s post(s) via social media and other online outlets, etc. We encourage our writers to actively promote their own posts and those of their fellow writers via their own social outlets.
New Content. Luxe Beat Magazine pays a modest amount per article for fresh, new content. This is a one-time fee, and each article may be used in as many formats as Luxe Beat Magazine sees fit (i.e. digital edition, online, print, newsletter, etc.) for up to one year from the date of publication, with the expectations that the content will be posted indefinitely. The contributor must commit to publishing the content exclusively with Luxe Beat Magazine and not republishing for six months after the Luxe Beat Magazine publication release date.
