• Do literary magazines accept work that has already been published once on social media and deleted?

    So my niece posted this piece of writing on her Facebook wall which she's planning to submit to a literary magazine. Would it be a problem if she removes it from her social media and then submits it?

    So, I have had social anxiety for as long as l can remember. Which is very strange because l perform in plays on stage and during that time I am super confident. Even won competitions. Then l realized that it's because l couldn't see the audience. However, same can't be said when l give class presentations. Even when I'm really well prepared l seem to be at a loss for words. Because l actually need to look at my classmates and interact with them. As soon as l go to the front of the class to give my presentation my throat gets dry, my voice shakes, my heart races and my breathing starts to get shallow. I can feel a huge lump forming in my throat. I'm 22 and this is actually gets very embarrassing sometimes.I wish there was some way to get over this. Any advice?

    A pond I fished, fifty yards across, Whose lilies and muscular tench Had outlasted every visible stone Of the monastery that planted them- Stilled legendary depth: It was as deep as England. It held Pike too immense to stir, so immense and old That past nightfall I dared not cast But silently cast and fished With the hair frozen on my head For what might move, for what eye might move. The still splashes on the dark pond, Owls hushing the floating woods Frail on my ear against the dream Darkness beneath night's darkness had freed, That rose slowly toward me, watching.
