Do pier review sights count as "published"? (for contests)

Postby hippie_vampire » Tue Sep 18, 2012 12:25 am

I was wondering in regards to whether or not something can be submitted to a contest; do pier review sights and personal blogs count as "previously published"? I'm thinking not since it's not an actual publisher and no money changed hands but I just wanted to check before I sent in my $20, ya know?

I may be wrong, but I believe if anyone can access and read it then it is considered published. If it has been Peer-reviewed online it's considered published. You need to check the competition's rules. If they are not clear send an email to the admin of the comp and ask them.

All the best,
Elizabeth

It depends on how its been peer-reviewed. If it is a members-only passworded site then that is fine and is considered the equivalent of a non-internet critique group. If it is publicly visible, then its been published. A blog would count as published because anyone can read it.

Yeah, if it's a 'closed site', it's not considered published (based on the guidelines I've read for various contests/publications). But if anyone can see it, it's published.
"It seems rather like wanting to be ... a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip." - Roger Zelazny

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.
