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
April 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!

Watercolor DreamsFlimsy watercolor dreams that
can be erased with a few teardrops
cannot make you feel alive,
but my chest was so hollow that
even a dying star was enough
to set my eyes alight

Watercolor Dreams by WindFragments

Very dreamy... A wonderful submission for NaPoWriMo

Little Rabbit Foo-FooIt was late in the evening one Thursday night and Little Rabbit Foo-Foo was hopping drunkenly through the forest, doing what he always did whenever he was this drunk--namely, scooping up any fieldmice he could find and bopping them on the head. The fieldmice protested this treatment of course, but in his drunken state he found their high-pitched pleas amusing and they only served to spur him on further.
He was only halfway through the forest when the trees suddenly lit up around him, and all the fieldmice took advantage of the distraction to scamper away from him. As he stared in shock and confusion, a round and winged form appeared and waved its finger at him crossly before identifying itself as Merryweather, the Good Fairy. "Little Rabbit Foo-Foo, I don't like your attitude," she said, "scooping up the fieldmice and bopping them on the head. Now I'm gonna give you two more chances to reform, and then I'm gonna turn you in to a ghoul."
Then she waved her magic wand and he found himsel

ballad of mr. white sock.                        ballad of mr. sock.
Two and two did they line the top drawer of the white painted dresser. yellow ones, gray ones, pink polka dotted ones, striped ones, rainbow colored ones, star print ones, animal print ones; all the prints of socks ever dreamed of were stuffed away in the top drawer of this particular white painted dresser.  But under the deafening ambiance of the circus of socks, was a small lonely sock cramped in the farthest, deepest, blackest corner; the left corner.  Saddened by his sudden loneliness, the little sock reminisced the story of how his pairing was taken away from him.  Just the night prior did mr. and mrs. white sock go on their first excursion.  To a land out of this world did they travel, in the tattered blue back pack of course.  A bedroom of space theme; sci-fi play guns, stars painted to the ceiling that glowed in the darkest of darks, planets taped to

A charming and silly story about a sock who goes looking for his beloved.

Enquete d'eterniteMicro
Au fin fond du chaos une lueur de vie
Bien vite fut changée en étincelle de vide
Lorsqu'avides éhontés nous la voulûmes saisir.
Eternité savante au rythme rond et fou
L'écervelé t'adore, je t'abhorre avant tout,
Perfidie endiablée que l'homme ne connaît point
Et malgré tout s'acharne à savoir tout au moins ;
Libido déchaînée de la science de l'ego,
Désir furieux des faibles de n'avoir pas d'égaux,
La crise de jouvence, ou de la quarantaine !
Oublie bien tôt hélas que notre outrance est vaine.
Dividus étalés à fière progréniture,
Cessez donc de piailler en pensant à la fin !
Gloire éphémère vaut mieux qu'hégémonie impure.
Elixirs de radiance, remèdes au trépas
Sont outils de violence et exhibés en vain.
Si la mort vous vainquez, vous n'en sortirez pas !

Enquete d'eternite by LNDFrance

The search for eternity and immortality, described with strong words of some tender bitterness convenient for that topic.

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
