You'd be better off posting this in BBQ (Board and Business Questions), as you may get an official answer there, and it is slightly off-topic here.
As a newer member, good ideas are forthcoming. However, ATS has fairly rigid rules, and is viably self-sufficient. There is no need to sell or
publish stories for extra revenue. There's also the aspect of joint-ownership rights, and while ATS is more than willing to release their end, many
publishers shy from not having exclusive rights. Any entry into a writing contest remains here, and as long as it's published here, ATS has legal
rights to the content.
Mind you, this question has come up before, and I'm just repeating what has been previously discussed.
Honestly, if you wish to pursue the idea of an ATS related hard-copy of material, you need to post a thread in BBQ. This forum is, well, short
Go ahead, do it. It never hurts to ask, and get an "official ruling" on policy. You won't get banned for asking a legitimate question, and in
fact, the staff will be honest and frank, and you even maybe will have an admin or owner post a response. You'd be surprised. Ask questions, get
answers, but anything board related goes in BBQ.
