#CRLiterature is a hub for all things Literature on deviantART. Run by the Literature Community Volunteers and community members, you should watch us to keep track of goings-on throughout the Literature community.

We post monthly news updates from the Community Volunteers, as well as contests, prompts, and chat events from throughout the community!

Assist and Admin: Issue 3

Wed Oct 29, 2014, 12:34 PM
Ever thought about creating your own Literature group? STOP RIGHT THERE. You may not need to! There could already be a group that is doing the EXACT thing you want to do. Before you touch that 'Create a Group' button, check here to see if you can be a part of an admin team. You have the added benefit of already having a team around you. How cool is that?!

Note I'll be posting this monthly and weeding things out quicker than I did with Love dA Lit, I want this is be as up-to-date as possible!

Note If you know of a group, or run a group, that needs administrative assistance send me a note or leave a comment below.

ezradeacon has a fantastic list of Lit Groups in Need if you can't find what you're looking for here.

New Additions

In Search of a New LeaderI'm looking for someone that I can turn the group over to. I haven't been very active as a founder and recently I have been forgetting to go through submissions. For the past year, this group was the only reason that I even got on DA, but now I just don't get on at all.
I'm looking for someone who gets on regularly and is willing to manage the group. It's honestly not too difficult of a task, you just need to care about it. I will give full control to whoever takes over. You can do what you want with the group.
I'll give a week for people to respond. Just tell me how active you are on DA and I will decide based on who I think will take the most care of the group.
In the event no one wants to be the new founder, I will change the submission policy so that nothing needs to be approved and just let the group idle. I might check in once a month or so.
We need more staff!Hi everybody! :wave:
As most of you know, Beat-The-Block recently achieved Supergroup Status, thanks to Premium-Memberships's awesome contest. If you are interested in volunteering your time and (a slight) weekly effort please send a note to either The Group, or to ShackledMuse.

theWrittenRevolution is hosting a chat event tomorrow! As you can see here

It will be to get some writing done around our monthly prompt, plus see what you could write for the various Halloween contests held around dA this time of year, get and give some feedback, and moar. :D A round of flash fiction with point prizes, if we get enough participants, will be held too. :dummy:

We will be having two chat events, the first to suit the European and Asian time zones, the second for the American ones!
  • The first one will be at 9AM GMT and will be easier to attend for the European and Asian folks since that time is from late morning to afternoon for them! Check out what time that is for you clicking > HERE.
  • The second one will be at 8PM GMT, which is from early to late afternoon for the American deviants. Check out what time that is for you clicking > HERE.

To enter the chatroom, click This Shiny Link or simply type /join thewrittenrevolution if you are in another chatroom aready. (:

Hope to see you all tomorrow! :wave:

Welcome Wagon: Getting to Know You
If you are a new writer to DeviantART, or perhaps trying to discover what the general Literature community has to offer, you find out quickly how vast this community is and can be outright confused by everything that this diverse website offers. With the creation of Expose-Lit, it is our hope to merge together the wonderful Writers Welcome Wagon R
Breaking in to Lit!Introduction
Literature has long been considered one of the closest knit communities on deviantART. As a result, some people find it difficult to "break in" to the Lit crowd. There are rumors of elitism, difficulty in getting exposure, and lack-luster appreciation for the incredible work that goes into writing a good piece of prose or a well structured poem.
If you look at a painting you can see amazing detail, great use of color, and the importance of the subject immediately. You know it came from the artist's imagination and that he or she had to spend hours translating that to a canvas. The tangibility of the work is right in front of you. With writing, it is not quite the same. The effort the author puts into the work can only be appreciated if readers put in their own effort to read the work. The gratification is not instant, which is one reason the lit community is so close knit.
Those who do have large followings often also comment and read quite a lot of work h

Hi, I'm just wondering what the process is for submitting deviations (or offering them) to this group. :)
GrimFace242 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2014   Writer
We don't allow submissions to the group.  We request Literature Daily Deviations to our gallery as well as projecteducate Literature Week submissions.  The only gallery folder we have open for submissions is our News Article folder.

We're not a general submissions group.  Currently we only request Lit DDs and projecteducate Lit articles.  If you're looking for a group to submit to, I would suggest WritersInk.
