Anti-plagiarism day

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 Slightly out of date, here's a post on Anti Plagiarism Day: ------------ I was sent a couple of stories by a good friend who alerted me to the fact that one of them has won a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.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
