Suggestion Rules

What to Do

To submit a piece for consideration, please choose an Admin from the appropriate category--Poetry, Prose, or Foreign Language--and note them with your suggestion. Easy as that!

Please submit your suggestion to only one category admin at a time to help us avoid confusion.

A deviant may only be featured once every 30 days. A deviation may only be featured once, ever. Do not suggest pieces that are already recipients of a DLR, DD, or DLD please.

The current submission format guidelines are:

"title" by AccountName

And an optional, brief description of why the piece should be featured could be included here.

We would appreciate it very much if this format was followed, especially the descriptor – if you can convince us of the piece in a few, short lines, we’re much more likely to give it the consideration it deserves! To see if a deviant has been featured recently, check the two monthly pages linked:

October 2014
November 2014

About Us

Daily Literature Recognition is here to recognize the literary community here on deviantART. We yearn for good literature and we thrive on your words.

By showcasing one featured Daily Deviation per day the Literature Community Volunteers provide the community with a showcase of excellence in Literature. In contrast, we will be showcasing excellence with a series of literature pieces each day here to serve the community. We are a diverse group featuring several pieces of quality literature every day.

In such a large community many artists feel that their work goes unnoticed. We are here to help change that!

though there are a million ways to dielover,
remember when the ocean ate you 
and didn't bother to pick its teeth
afterwards. it did not recall
your name
because it never knew it. remember,
not only did you die alone,
you died anonymous. 
and lover remember the time
you died of cancer
which is always hungry. it spit you out knobbed
and shaved and rubbed 
like a stone from the riverbed. spit
you out skinny because it does not like
its own aftertaste. you died a shrill
stem of yourself because death
like to play with its food first. my lover, 
lover, do you remember
when the train came to meet you 
and its arms were open? how brainlessly
it broke you, and you shattered 
like a vase falling from the window sill. 
it was not whistling, but howling your name
in an octave only grief can touch.
beloved lover, i love you
and when you leapt from that high
place remember that you were a bird
for one sheer
second. lover lover i love
you and it is a cruel thing to do to me:

A beautiful poem with a delightful narrative and rhyme scheme. Describing the thoughts of a nervous individual dealing with someone they love.

Today we buried my uncle.Today was the funeral for my Uncle Paul. He is the fourth sibling Papa has had to say goodbye to, along with both his parents when he was only eight. Papa has seemed so at peace as Uncle Paul struggled with cancer. They visited all the time this last year, especially after the terminal diagnosis was given in February. I watched Papa at the reception this afternoon; he talked with his siblings, cousins, and nephews and nieces, and held his grandson. He smiled a lot, laughed, and joshed around with family and friends.
He seems at peace.
Then I thought about what he might be like alone. If he weeps or has wept in private over the year as the radiation treatments failed to have an effect, as Paul’s health deteriorated, when his brother was confined to a hospice bed because he could no longer move.
I pictured Papa singing to the goats during the morning milking with tears on his cheeks, his voice choking up until he eventually leans his head against the warm, hairy side of the doe, wa

This short nonfiction piece reminds us we all grieve--though not always in the same ways.

I Speak to Everyone.As dusk fell, there was a knock at the door. Clara opened it with a mixture of fear and hope.
Superimposed upon an icy backdrop, with pink-tinged sky and trees groaning under the weight of ever increasing snowfall, stood a small lad, still clinging to the knocker as if his hand was frozen to it. He looked surreal, pale and fragile, also somewhat poorly clad for the weather conditions. And yet he had a vibrancy and urgency about him.
He released his hand from the knocker and tugged Clara’s arm.
“Please come with me,” he urged. “The man is calling for you and he cannot move.”
Man? Frank? Her husband had been missing for six days. Her hopes raised! Quickly, without speaking further, she grabbed her coat and followed the boy as he led her to the edge of the woods and onto a small path she had never noticed before. It was untrodden and the virgin snow upon it, yielded helplessly to their footfall.
Questions surged in her mind but they remained unspoken; the urg

A suspenseful, fascinating story with a twist ending.

I'm a bit new to Deviantart, so forgive me if the answer is obvious. IS there anyway to see the Pick of the Day for previous days? If so, how?
