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:

August 2014
September 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!

The imagery and subtle storytelling in this poem by ourage leaves a lot to the imagination.  What story do you find here?

The Green UmbrellaIt’s raining outside and it feels sad. Everything is grey and bleak and it makes me feel sad, which just makes all of this so much worse.
I usually love the rain.
I love looking out the window of my apartment and watching the clouds gather in great billowing heaps, collecting more and more moisture until they can’t possibly hold it back any longer and the sky bursts open. I love seeing the first drops of rain hit the pavement, leaving tiny dark specks of fresh water on the ground until suddenly everything is wet, and you can’t see the droplets for the torrential downpour they’re caught in.
I love to watch the streets as it begins to rain. First, the ripple of awareness as everyone looks to the sky, faces upturned as if to welcome the showers. Then, the storm of black as umbrellas spring up where before there was nothing. I like to watch the streets empty as everyone takes shelter in cafes and shops and libraries and hotel lobbies.
I like to imagine people meetin

Rain can often lead to despair, but in this well-written story, it unites two perfect strangers.

A Letter to MozartI have a confession to make.
I think we should break up.
Don’t get me wrong, you are a collection of stars. Every time I hear that little night music I look up in the sky and I see your magnificent constellation shining ever-so-bright down upon me. I am so thankful for our little infinity, but I just can't see this working out.
Anyone with eyes could see what a distinguished composer you are. What with your sumptuous symphonies and celebratory sonatas, you are a heartthrob; oh, what I would give to have you tickle my ivories if even just once. But you see, I think I’ve had enough of your distasteful dissonance. All that’s left between us are aggravating augmentations and catastrophic cadenzas.
I wish that I could taste our mellifluous melodic memories one last time. Last I remember we shared such a charming concerto; now all I’m left with is a wasteful waltz. What happened to those fantastic fantasias we were always dreaming of?
We used to have such grace and su

Musical puns and an abundance of alliteration abound in this short breakup letter.

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?
