Nope! Your creative work is always yours. You may choose to post it, edit it, publish it wherever else you wish. Submitting your work to Queerstory simply gives us permission to share it in whole or in part as an element of the collective that is Queerstory.
Yes. If you would like to share your work to be posted as part of the Queerstory collective, you can offer a pen name when submitting your work to us. That way if you ever submit more than one project to Queerstory, readers can find all works created by the same artist in the future. But you don't need to reveal any personal information that you don't wish to share.
