ByLines—what are they?

What is a byline?

In the publishing world at large, a byline is the place on an original creative published work where a writer receives credit for his contribution. A byline is the traditional means by which an author receives credit for an important, original creative piece of writing that's printed in a newspaper or magazine.

By extension, a byline is the place where the originator claims credit for any kind of aesthetic composition, such as a painter's name signed in the lower right corner of his painting or a composer's signature at the top of a page of sheet music or on the cover page of a musical score.


ByLine features—what are they?

A ByLine feature is any feature at Electricka's web site where Electricka publishes original works created by and submitted by visitors to her web.

To receive ByLine credit, a visitor must submit a work to Electricka that makes an original creative contribution to the arts. The visitor's work must be of interest and value to other visitors to Electricka's web site and to the arts, however large or small.

When you see, read, or hear one of these ByLine works you are looking at an original work of art or an original and creative work about some significant aspect of art. The work may have been created especially with visitors in mind or it may have been created for another purpose before submitting it to Electricka for publication. It may or may not have been published prior to submission to Electricka.
