I understand that our stories must be hosted somewhere online to share on the forums for peer feedback

HOWEVER

Are we welcome to publish our stories publicly? On, say, an author blog?

Since you retain all the rights to the stories you create during the competition, you are free to do whatever you like with the stories, including publishing them publicly.  Please let us know if you have any other questions or need anything else.  Good luck!
Next up is the Screenwriting Challenge 2019 kicking off April 12th.

From what I understand you can put them up in a non public access area until the judging is finished; or you might run into the judges running plagiarism searches and get disqualified.
