    Does ‘unpublished’ mean not on a literature website already?

      To answer your question, we consider published to mean that someone who is a publisher accepted the work and then published it in their magazine, anthology, or other item and then distributed that to the general public, or printed a small run for a private group. So feel free to submit your work, Margaux!

      Thanks for your question!
