Some writers have expressed concern that publishing work on Red Bubble will deem their stories ineligible for submission to competitions or publications elsewhere.
As far as hard copy lit. mags are concerned I don’t believe publishing online without editorial selection (i.e. on Red Bubble) counts as having been published.
As far as competitions go, Irina Dunn from the NSW Writers’ Centre kindly informed me that with regards to competitions she has organised, such as The Coves Historical Writing Competition 2007, “‘published’ means in book or magazine form and not on the internet.”
I hope that gives everyone the green light to get their work on here for some invaluable feedback!
