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.

Now you see me. Now you don't.
The lack of sight. Things we cannot see, literally for figuratively. A state of something we cannot grasp or understand, maybe. Be it the invisibility of a spirit, the tactical cloak, or inability to comprehend. If no one can see it, does it have a form? The whisper in your head, the psychic vampire, the ghost watching and stalking you, the dream you cannot remember.
This week, we will grasp and write about the invisible things or beings. You can't see them, but you can write about them.

Happy writings,

how comes I joined the group but my writing didn't become any more popular? Either the group is not as active as I thought it would be or my writing is really that bad, but that can't be, now can it?

DeviantART doesn't work like that. Simply joining does not give you page views. Groups are communities. This one is for sharing literature with each other as a community. If you want to get recognized, participate in the community; read others' works, comment, critique, chat, submit work, that kind of thing.
