I do appreciate that the Writing Workshop posts don't seem to be searchable via Google but I think it would be even better if you had to be logged in as a member to even view them. While most publications would likely frown on publishing a work that the writer has already published online, some will make exceptions when that work was published in a password protected venue for the purposes of editing and critiquing. Currently the Writing Workshop does not meet that requirement and thus writers would be ill advised to post a work that they would one day like to be published. It wouldn't be good enough for all publishers, but it would increase the writers' options. Is there a downside that I may be missing? Thanks.
