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 2015
November 2015
December 2015
February 2016

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!

What do you think about the single deviant daily feature? 

6 deviants said Nice change!
5 deviants said I love it!
3 deviants said Eh
2 deviants said Bring back the old ways!
2 deviants said I'll hold judgement.

DLR is in need of volunteers. 

6 deviants said I can't volunteer, but I'll send in suggestions (Thanks!)
5 deviants said I can volunteer, but only in small amounts (send us a note)
4 deviants said I'm sorry, I just don't have the time (no worries)
1 deviant said I can volunteer, as much as you need (send us a note)

We are thinking of changing the format to a single lit feature a day and then a full feature on Sunday. 

14 deviants said Sounds good
6 deviants said I will wait and see how this turns out
1 deviant said You've lost me for good
No deviants said I have a better idea (Send us a note)
No deviants said I don't care
No deviants said There were too many features to begin with

Daily Literature Recognition for February 10, 2016

Featured Author of the Day


Love Letter to the AbyssDear _______,
I am a creature who functions by filling up every moment with things that count. I clean. I cook. I do homework. I sew. I put things together and then I tear them apart. I offer to help. I never sit idle for long. When I sit idle, I think. When I think, everything I do that counts starts to boil down like too much water in a pot, running dry until all that is left is this vessel of me.
You know that about me. At least I think you do. Or, most likely, I pretend that you do. I pretend that you know me well enough to know that I run so quickly so I cannot see the emptiness within me. I pretend that you know that I fill everything up and that it’s how I avoid thinking about more complex topics. The girl that can give you a fifteen minute dissertation about the electron transport chain, who thinks in terms of C-24 and C-26 Fatty Acids, and who can think her way out of the most complex situations in the English Language strains under the complexity of what it means to stil

I gave her shit about it, almost constantly. It wasn’t as though I didn’t feel for whatever was going on with her—the ribbing was all good-natured. I always intended to make her smile, but there she was like a damned albatross whenever she put the thing on. I would always look behind me for a falling brick or dead relative.
It was one of those baby doll numbers, puffing over her arms and ending a few inches above her knee in a frill of lace. She looked like a little girl who was lost and out of place. She would pull at a layer of chiffon or nervously tuck away a pleat beneath her, focusing on anything but the thing that made her think of wearing it in the first place. She was a first-class procrastinator in terms of dealing with her problems.
She sat beside me, her fingers plucking at the darting and pulling at invisible seams. Every five minutes or so, she would glance up at me with an apprehensive smile, as though

Jennifer is a relatively unknown author here on deviantArt, but is published in more than one anthology. She is currently working on a game design that has a world wide release in the next year. She is a talented poet and long form writer. Take a look through her gallery and find some hidden gems. I am personally pushing her for more work that she can share here with us, but if you are lucky enough to find them, check out her publications, they are all worth the read.

Sorry, but is there a way I can enter a work of mine? I would really like to get this poem out there and let people know more about his disorder
DailyLitRecognition Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2015
Sure!  All you need to do is send the piece to one of our feature admin in a note.  You can find a list of available admin on our profile page.

Thank you for making this group and many thanks for support my horror shortstory "Schmetterling, du boeses Ding" :hug:
To return the favour, i will try to support the other writers here.
I will also read all the guidelines and then i have to think about which works of my friends i will support. I know many nice and great writers here. This is a good thing to say "Thank you" to all of them and give back all the support they give me before :)

Nice greetings.

I guess I set the birthday of this account as my birthday when I set it up. Whoever is running it can feel free to change that.  LOL
