So, your founder, well, I love writing. I mean, my life revolves around it. My dream is to become a published author, so I am very excited to have created a literature based group! YAY!!! I have a feeling we could have a heap of fun here! That is, if enough people join...

As the title suggests, this is a literature group for all writers alike! I welcome and encourage all of you to join!!!

But, I also have another group that I founded a little while ago: :iconlove-forever-create:! This group accepts all forms of art, so, if, unlike me, you happen to be lucky enough to be multi-talented and want to share something other than your writing with us, or even if you're only interested in writing, please have a look and join if you can!! I'd love both of my groups to be equally awesome!!!

So, I think that's about it for the moment. If you have any questions or suggestions just ask by note or comment on the group. I'd love to hear what you have to say and I'm more than happy to answer any questions you may have!

Enjoy our group!! And remember, the more members we have, the more fun it becomes!! So get advertising and try and recruit some new members!!!

Also, don't forget to read the links I put up above! They are very important to ensure the group runs smoothly!

Group Info

To write is to escape.

To escape is to write.

This group is for writers. Prose, poetry, fanfiction, lyrics, everything.

This group is a place for writers to share their writing, read others' writing and improve their skills.

The fortnightly themes are designed to challenge writers to write about a particular topic, and are also useful when suffering from Writer's Block.

I hope you guys enjoy this group as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Your founder,
Ash :heart:

Hi all :wave:

I hope all of you are well and making the most of life.

I just wanted to announce that the challenge will be up by the 18th of April hopefully. It's just that I have just come into mid-semester assessment at uni at the moment and I can't spare enough time to write up the thorough challenge journal yet. The mid-semester break starts on Good Friday, the 18th, so I am hoping to get the journal done then before I have to continue work on two big assignments due at the same time for two different subjects.

As much as I love dA and this group, I'm paying a ridiculous amount of money to study and I need to put life before my duties on here for the next fortnight. I hope the wait just makes you enjoy the challenge more!

Now, as you know, for this challenge to be as amazing as I want it to be, we need some epic prizes for the five winners, who will be randomly drawn from a hat and recorded in order. Like usual, there will be three major winners, and two minor winners. You will understand why it is randomly drawn when the challenge is explained in a fortnight. For the moment, that is my secret.

I am going to start the prize pool here, in this journal, so here is the real purpose of this.

If you can offer anything in the way of prizes for this challenge then please comment here or note the group with the subject line "Challenge Prize Donations" or something to that effect.

All prize donors will get a feature of one deviation of their choice in a journal after all prizes have been finalised in this group.

I will accept anything for prizes here. No offer is too small.

For example:
:bulletpurple: llamas
:bulletpurple: critiques
:bulletpurple: watches
:bulletpurple: features/interviews etc
:bulletpurple: a piece of writing or art written/created for the winner
:bulletpurple: premium memberships
:bulletpurple: points
:bulletpurple: anything and everything else you could possibly think of!

I would really appreciate donations, big or small, to make this challenge even more brilliant!

Thank you!
Your founder,
Ash -imperfect-parachute


Current Prize Pool

So a big THANK YOU to everyone who has and will donate!! I really appreciate it!!

Me (to change as I figure out more to offer) - a llama to all winners; a critique on four chosen pieces for first, three for second, two for third, one for fourth and one for fifth; a poem/prose piece for first (if they want one...or if I can come up with anything decent that promises); a feature in this group's journal, and my personal journal for all winners (in my journal, I will feature the pieces I critique as well as the contest entry); and hopefully more if I can figure anything out.

MarcoEmma - a feature in journal to each winner

gleeful34 -  a llama to each winner and a poem for 1st place.

I accidently put my poem in the prose folder. How can I get my poem moved to one of the poetry folders?

Can you get my newest work into a critique folder? I really need it done if it's going public.

Hi. Just a quick comment. The In Need of Critiques folder has been closed for some time as I was finding it difficult to motivate my contributors to complete the critiques regularly. Your piece is most welcome in the folder, I'm just letting you know that it may be a little while before your piece is critiqued, as I will be organising that to happen when I revamp the group. I apologise for this. It will be critiqued eventually, but it may be a little while.
Akara-Legend Apr 8, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
It's better than it not having been critiqued at all. :)
imperfect-parachute Apr 8, 2014  Student Writer
It will be critiqued eventually. Thank you for being patient. :)

Is this in reference to Contritum: Wolf Brotherhood? I can move it to the In need of Critique folder if you'd like. :nod:

Oh, and welcome to the group! :D
Akara-Legend Apr 7, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah. I submitted it to several other groups for critiques. No critique ever came.
Edges-to-Everything Apr 7, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
It is now in the critiques folder. :nod:

Oops!! I'm sorry, when I was submitting my poem I just pressed "Contribute to this group" Because the poetry folder wasn't open. I don't know where my submission was sent. Sorry!! :c
