critique piece=published piece?

Postby Albertalyn » Fri Sep 21, 2012 7:32 pm

If you post a piece in the critique central, does that make the piece a published piece? Can it still be submitted for publishing or contests? I am new here and would like to join the forum and have some of my work read. I look forward to ALL positive and negative feedback. There are so many inspirational writers here and feel that I can learn form you all. Thanks

Most publishers don't consider a piece actually published if it's posted in a password protected critique site. If it's posted in a place where anyone can see it, then it's considered published.

What maia said … and I recommend for even short pieces on password-protected sites (like our critique section here, where anyone can obtain a password and enter) that the poster keep the excerpt at a chapter or less, leave it up for a short time (say less than two weeks after the last critique is posted), and then delete it. I will also delete upon request quoted sections of the work.

It's simply the prudent thing to do, along with not leaving your pocketbook in a locked car, registering to vote instead of complaining, and watering your garden even though the forecast calls for rain. 'Tis unlikely that your piece will be "stolen" or disqualified by a publisher, but if s/he cannot read it, you can change "unlikely" to impossible.

Googlebots and other search engines cannot enter password-protected sites, btw, so the piece is available only to human eyes.

It is not published if you post it on a critique site. It does have copyright protection, though.
