The Gallery Press is currently funded by the Arts Council and commits to upholding its Paying the Artist policy.
The Gallery Press acts as publisher/agent for authors and their Estates.
Our Contracts on titles commits to Advances (range €800-€1200) – set and ring-fenced in year of publication budgets.
After Advance earned we pay authors 10% royalties (per title) on retail price. Prompt statements each March show sales (previous calendar year) plus any permissions/rights (sub-licences, broadcasts etc) income due.
Sums over €100 on sub-licensed rights are paid within one month of receipt.
We ensure writers’ copyright is respected, both in terms of moral and economic rights.
We pay Workshop fees to facilitators (Gallery authors) (range €800-€1000)
We pay artists for cover artwork and illustrations (when used).
