Q: Do you accept comics/manga?
A: Indeed we do! Please submit all comics and manga to the folder titled "Graphic Novels, Comics, Manga."

Q: Do you accept fanfiction?
A: Yes. We even have a folder for it simply titled "Fanfiction"

Q: Do you accept literature in foreign languages?
A: We most certainly do.

Q: Why can we only submit once per week into the Critique folder?
A: We only accept 1 per week because we want our members to limit their submissions to the ones they specifically want critiqued, not just every single piece. And we wish to conserve space.

Q: What is "Theme of the Week"?
A: The Themes are simply one broad idea put out every weekend. It is only to help people with inspiration, or just for fun.

Q: Is "Theme of the Week" a contest?
A: No. It's sole purpose is to help provide inspiration. There are no winners.

Q: Can we submit more than one deviation to "Theme of the Week?
A: Absolutely. And you may write as many as you wish. Or none.

Q: Regarding "Theme of the Week", may we post already existing deviations for the theme?
A: Yes.

Q: Regarding "Theme of the Week", are we supposed to submit them in a specific folder?
A: There is a "Theme of the Week" folder, but you do not have to submit your work there. For example, if you write a poem inspired by a Theme, you may submit it to "Theme of the Week" folder or to the "Poetry Free/Blank Verse" folder. Same goes with any other type of writing.

Q: Is there a word limit?
A: Nope. Make your works as long or short as you please.

Q: Do you accept visual poetry?
A: Poetry is poetry, so yes.

Q: Do you accept mature literature?
A: Yes. We even have a folder for it.

Q: Do you do "Monthly Challenge" anymore?
A: Unfortunately, the admin who ran Monthly Challenge, Paperback-Astronaut, has deactivated his account. With him gone, so is Monthly Challenge.
A Challenge is meant to challenge your skill as a writer, it is meant to push you into doing something you wouldn't originally do. Above all, it is meant to be fun.

One of our affiliates, Inkitt, is holding a writers' contest I believe many of you dear members would find interesting. On behalf of them, we are promoting this contest that is titled Epic Worlds. Find out more about it on their website! -->
When you write your entry, submit it to their website. If you wish, you can also add it to our group; however, Inkitt will not see it if it is submitted to this group only. To enter, simply read their prompt and submit your work on their website.

Happy writings!

Hello! I am new to the group but have submitted a story for critique. Please take a look at my story "Saint" in the critiques folder. I have had this story in my mind for awhile and would love some honest, and constructive, feedback. Thanks!

I would really appreciate  it if someone would read "Experiment 93, Part 1: Midnight Escape" and let me know what they think. It's been up for quite some time now and has yet to get any comments, and I would love to know what people think of it :)

Greetings fellow writers,

I am basically new to writing in deviantart. I recently submitted a few poems and two short stories (one of them possibly continuing). They are not fanfictions and they all have a philosophical meaning. If someone is interested, go ahead and read them, give me your opinions.

Are there any specific ones you'd like me to read?

The Mother´s Day story, although a short one, I believe it reflects so much about society. If you are interested in how human nature and customs we have can be put down, please have a look. Thank you very much.
