Dear members of the literature community,Live-Love-Write
is proud to announce a new lineup of programs and projects for the fall season. Please join us to participate in fun challenges, get to know your fellow dA writers, gain a year-long critique partner, win prizes, and more!
Whose Chapter Is It, Anyway?
Our first new addition to the lineup! Participants will be given a prompt written by staff and take turns writing the next chapter of the story. The final completed novel will be published in The Quotebook, and writers will earn voted titles. This is meant to be a strong community effort, so hopefully we'll get to know each other very well. Registration for this program is now open here
and will end on October 31st. The length of time devoted to each story depends on how many writers sign up, but our current hopeful estimate is a month or two. Find more details in the forum
One contest? Bring it on. A tournament? Even better! A year long competition of monthly contests, with each contest's winners competing in the last month for a grand prize? Mind blown! I hope? Find more details in the forum
. The current contest
ends on November 8th.
Our magazine that never quite got started is now under production. A pilot issue is slated for release on deviantART at the end of October; subsequent issues will be released on a quarterly basis. To submit your piece for consideration, please link us in a comment on the Quotebook forum
. All questions and comments should be directed to the forum as well.
Can't get critiques? Need someone to bounce your ideas off of? Want a fellow author to participate in group events with? Synergy, our pet partner project, is back on track to provide you with all of the above. Participants will be assigned in pairs who will serve as critique partners until the session ends. The October and November sign up session
has been extended to the 23rd. Partner lists will be posted on the 25th. Further explanation of the Synergy program can be found here
Our weekend chatroom will meet every Saturday night to discuss favorite literature and current writing projects. Please see the Socratic Circle forum
to check each week's Circle meeting times.
Due to the inexplicable amount of effort it takes to produce Fount lists, updates will be released on the first of each month. To submit your favorite books, comic books, video games, movies, or any other work of fiction for recommendation, please comment on the Fount forum
I solemnly swear that the prompt shall be updated every ten days. The new prompt has been released, so if you're looking to vent some creative steam and score a feature, check it out!
