Anti-plagiarism day • 18 July 2009 • The SnowBlog
I scheduled this post to appear yesterday. But it didn't. Oops. Slightly out of date, here's a post on Anti Plagiarism Day:
I was sent a couple of stories by a good friend who alerted me to the fact that one of them has won a prize. Thing is, it was written after its author read the other story, which is pretty much identical in every way that matters - story, form, even horribly similar sounding character names.
Plagiarism is dreadful. Read the comments on this post to see one author's reaction when she discovered her work had been plagiarised. And visit How Publishing Really Works today who have named today anti-plagiarism day.
