Submitting A Previously Published Poem

Postby Brian28 » Mon Apr 14, 2014 7:42 pm

Hi,

There was a poem that I wrote a few years back and it received a merit award in a poem competition and I wanted to resubmit the poem again. I e-mailed them and they said that since I own full copyright to the poem I can do with it as I please and I can edit, alter it and rewrite it but I wanted to know if it's possible for me to change the title of the poem. I'm not fully satisfied with it and I wanted to know if a writer can re-submit a previously published poem, resubmitting it with a title change?

Thank you ;)

He can do anything he wants with it, but if it was published, he needs to tell the editors in the cover letter.

Are you asking if you can slap a new title on your old poem and sell it as new?

I don't know anything about selling short work, but that seems pretty shady.

From how I understand it, the poem has never been published, only entered in a competition. Entering a competition is not being published. No-one has seen it except the competition judges. If it has not been published anywhere it is considered new material and you can make any changes you like (including title). However, I would not make any changes at all. I would submit the poem as is, being sure to mention in the cover letter that the poem won a merit award in a competition.

If you submit material that has been previously published, you are duty bound to sell it as a reprint. Some magazines do buy reprints, but you would not be paid as much for it, and you would have to declare it as previously published, when and by whom.
