Q: Do you accept comics/manga?
A: Not anymore. Sorry.
Q: Do you accept fan-fiction?
A: Yes. We even have a folder for it.
Q: Do you accept literature in foreign languages?
A: We most certainly do.
Q: Why can we only submit once per month into the critique folder?
A: We only accept 1 per month 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: Regarding "Theme of the Week", may we post already existing deviations for the theme?
A: Absolutely. And you may write as many as you wish. Or none.
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 of course we do.
Q: Do you accept mature literature?
A: Of course we do.
Q: Do you do "Monthly Challenge" anymore?
A: 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.
Unfortunately, we no longer run the Monthly Challenge. The admin who ran it is no longer part of DeviantART.
