    What if my piece doesn't win in the contest?

    If my contest entry is not selected as a winner, can I delete the hub and try to publish my work elsewhere?

    I would think so because you are the owner of the copyright and the contest is a one-time publishing. IMHO

    You can always unpublish your Hubs. The option is there.

    Not winning the contest maybe a matter of taste also, instead of pure quality. Trying it somewhere only seems fare. It's your piece. You can do with it what you want to.

    Of course you can. Your hubs belong to you and you alone. If you had a 100 hubs here you can delete every single one of them. Just because your entering a contest does not stop you from removing it should it be a winner or not. Good luck with your entries.

    You can, but many publishers will not accept pieces that have already been published. Even if you delete it from Hubpages, having posted it makes it "prepublished". Make sure you read submission guidelines when submitting it for publication to ensure the venue accepts reprints.
