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:

July 2014
August 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!

This piece by Toon3h turns writers block into both a desert and a revolution.

The Trapeze ArtistAt the edge of the cliff my lover dances, tiptoes, sun-speckled skin, and windswept honey-golden hair. I shout words to her from the backseat of the car, parked several meters away, but the words are melted into the roar of the wind and sea. A spray of seafoam leaps from the waves to caress her feet with its white, gentle hands. She is a vision cloaked in sunlight, silhouetted against the sharp stab of bright across the infinite blue fields of sky. My feet touch the sienna of the earth as I step from the car, water flickering into my eyes as if driving me away from her. But when spins again and sees me, reaching for her, time slows to a crawl. She jumps, an acrobat reaching for an invisible trapeze in the distance, except there is no trapeze to catch her and she plummets into the water. I reach for her hand and it dissolves into sea foam, yet another white, gentle hand in the distance, the hand of the other lover who seduced her before I could pull her back.

This short piece leaves a lot to be interpreted, but the emotions captured in just one paragraph are powerful.

Making Some Changes    There truly was no denying that the seasons were starting to change in Phasma. The air was getting chillier, the leaves of the forests were changing colors and some of the machina were starting to get their cooling systems switched out in favor of the heating. Lazarus, the leader of the machines, was no exception to this rule. He was currently lying on his side while a trusted technician worked on his insides with his partner and his companion watching nearby. Daniel was perched on Gene's shoulder, his eyes were focused on Phasma's local bioweapon. His stare didn't go unnoticed.
    "Danny, if you watch me any harder then I think I might spontaneously explode or something. Do you really want that while I'm working on your partner?" Sasha the Technician, or Techie as she was commonly called, asked with a playful smile. Her teal eyes glanced over at the pair. Gene was staring at his companion now with an amused grin. Daniel huffed as he crossed his arm

A unique story amongst some of the other stories available on deviantART.

while I do love the thought that my work belongs somewhere 

I do not enjoy the label "rhymecore", the form my words take are only what I need them to be and I need them to be this like a heroin addict looking for a needle man! it's just gotta happen a certain way or it's just not the same!

however I tried to look up the word and only came up with some jew hating rap group, in light of this discovery I shall happily do my utmost to take this word away from them for the sake of a possible creation of genre and more importantly social progress in a positive direction

so yeah

let's make this a thing

a good thing
