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:

February 2015
March 2015

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!

Verso VIThe fallen fronds of palm
have a strange tendency to look
like dead animals
when you drive past them in the street.

Verso VI by QuiEstInLiteris

Human eyes are easily tricked into seeing things that are not there or as they never were; this short poem examines the phenomenon.

vigil.i’m a boy who kisses crosses, and the pages of the bible
whisper to me in my sleep, stories of labor and towers
built to be destroyed by an angry god up above; some
call them martyrs, and in the halfway place between
manhood and my psychiatrist’s mouth, i call them
people with nothing better to do—i find god in a box
of tissues on her table and eat the body of christ as
a lithim tablet (saltier than i remember) and pray
that the girl i first kissed found a man who loves her—
brothers and sisters, we are gathered here today to
worship at the white altar, but look at us: we’ll put
our umbrellas above a stranger’s head and risk catching
a cold, we’ll give a man a dollar and come home to a
painfully empty apartment—we’re all just suicidal
and convincing each other not to do it; when will we
look in the mirror, at our raccoon eyes, at our wildfire
hair, at our crooked teeth, and decide that, even if it’s
overcast, the day is bright

vigil. by ohellohara

Suggester says: I like this piece for a number of reasons. I think it's well-written overall; I like the little bit of enjambment, particularly in the first stanza, that they've put in; the three-line stanzas seem appropriate and make it easy to read; and, on a personal note, the poem makes me feel as though someone might understand what I'm going through at the moment, and also that there might be a chance that living another day could be worth it.

The PromiseSophie Armistead sat in a cafe on the hill, trying to decide whether or not to leave her family. It wasn't that she didn't love them; the love she felt for them is what had kept her going for the last seventeen years. But it had become increasingly harder to bear in recent years. The only thing that kept her sane were these stolen hours atop the hill, where she could sit quietly and just think nothing. The truth was, she was tired of being bruised, bitten, and hit, always unexpectedly. She always forgave him, because she knew he didn't know better. But knowing and feeling didn't always agree.
She had known years ago it would be difficult, but she hadn't known just how challenging it would be to raise an autistic son. She knew something was different about Corey when he was an infant but she couldn't pinpoint what exactly. He had been slow to crawl, stand up on his own, and take his first steps. And it took a long time for him to get used to the feel of water. He was also a picky eater.

The Promise by kbuckm

A beautiful story about a mother's struggles raising a child with special needs.

november nights“Do you want anything?” Sleep coated his brusque British accent. He traipsed calloused, double-jointed fingers through his raven knotted hair. The autumn breeze drifted through the cracked car window, brushing strands across his broad forehead. Diesel drifted into my nostrils, and the afternoon heat of black tar highways lingered in the musk of the leather car. The neon gas station light flickered with a humming buzz-pop of electric static. A lone figured lingered in front of the red and blue open sign and an advertisement for draft liquor, puffing cigarette smoke from his lungs. The rush of the highway muffled the deadened silence, providing a comfortable background noise.
“Nah, I’m good,” I said, tossing a sleepy smile to the passenger seat. The seatbelt clicked, and he leaned against the car door.
“Wait,” I said. The lights from the store cast a shadow across his jawbone, but his eyes illuminated a soft brown hue in the darkness. “If f

Alter EgoDer Autor:
Bin auch Faust ich oft im Geiste,
Werd zu Mephisto doch fortan.
Ein Stück Alice, das ich mir leiste,
Schnell zu Ahab werden kann.
Ein Funken Carter, der in mir kreiste,
Wird unverhofft zu Kane sodann.
Und selbst wenn ich nur Samsa bin,
Verwandle ich mich zum Käfer hin.
Der Philosoph:
Ich blicke in des Abgrunds Tiefe.
Ach, wär ich in Arcadia,
Wo ich bei Ariadne schliefe,
Wo ich Satyrn und Nymphen sah.
Der Wein gar halkyonisch liefe,
Ein Traum, den Epikur gebar.
Doch führ ich Krieg gegen Moral,
Bin Antichrist, so hab ich keine Wahl.
Der Träumer:
Ich seh erneut, die finsteren Gestalten
Im All und auf des Meeres Grund,
Die blasphemisch bei uns walten,
Ihr Handeln prägt das Erdenrund.
Sie kommen bald, die großen Alten,
Die Welt, sie wird zum Höllenschlund.
So kann ich zitternd nur noch sagen:
I'ä, I'ä, Cthulhu fhtagn!

Drohend kommt der Stein ins Rollen,

Alter Ego by AlmostWhitey

Traditional poetry piece about the changing self. You will meet the author, the philosopher, the dreamer, the bug king, the poet, the elven prince, the world wanderer, the wolf girl and the distant echo of the philosopher - all in one person. Very interesting concept in the style of the ancient poets.

Thank you ever so much for featuring my story! I am truly grateful.

I have several more stories, which remain unpublished. One of them should appear on DA over the next few days.

Most of my work at the moment is in relation to a fantasy novel (or a collection of stories!) that my friend Soranea and I are writing together. We call it The-Golden-Heart and we hope to submit some art and text in relation to this, very soon!

Once again, thank you <3

I'll try my best to be more active and supportive whenever I find the time.
