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:


:thumbcode:
"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:

June 2014
July 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!

Jack and the Beanstalkeveryone laughs and says
I sold my bread and butter for
a handful of beans that won't buy jack
but where they see dirt I see 
a ladder brushing its fingers against the atmosphere
twisting up and around itself to form
new growth so green and alive and yes
I may be on the bottom rung and true
I can't see the golden goose from here but
they say there are giants in the promised land
and I hope to God it's true because
I want to feel afraid when I get there.

Jack and the Beanstalk by ReubenDeFlash



Per the suggestor: tigerli-ly's comment says it well:

"...that is the perfect manifestation of not only hoping for the 
better things in life, but also actually taking a chance at bringing 
them into action! I love how you twisted the single-sided 
nature of the moral of the original story and turned it to show 
the positive side of ambition (not necessarily greed)..."

FinalityThe Man of Many Maladies
has flowers that fade to grey,
the dry rot,
the twenty-one grams
and he is already gone by morning.
An overpowering, a tyranny of mind
seeped through the porous skin-
it is there now,
it will be there.
The engine, custom made
by some sick saboteur, is slow now-
it makes gruesome churning sounds,
metal against metal, noxious sparks-
like an expiring titanium bird.
The ivory keys of a piano
play somewhere in a distant room.
There is at least meaning in that.
He hears it and tries to imagine himself walking,
just walking, nowhere in particular.
Where in that place there once was air,
rich and sharp colours,
movement and sound.
Where there were wall-mounted clocks
that could be easily ignored-
other people pass through there,
and will again.
But for him there is just the music,
the music, and the darkness.
Dead on arrival,
I expected to be-
dark magic
with a twist of tragedy,
a flick of the syringe
a plunge.
I lunge forward,
forlorn and trembling-
you can see my ed

Finality by ncaph



Three poems in one, the tale of drugs 
and a victim to them. Sharp as a syringe.

Eyes to TellGeordie knows what happened to the 'sno-cone man. Why he don't come round no more. Same time the Reverend's bright, handsome boy Dennis went to visit his relatives in the 'States.
He knows too what's buried 'neath the empty lot, next to the old brewery on Fairview Hill.
Thinking over the things he knows, Geordie gets a sly-puss smile on his face. ‘I got a roof need fixin 'fore hurricane season and me without a dime to spare.’
He’s been letting this one sit. Two months gone and sure bet the Reverend thinks his secret’s safe. But the Bishop’s coming for the dedication of the new church. Now’s the time to make his play.  
He makes sure his lettering on the note is just right. It takes a couple tries―he don't got the steadiest hand no more—then he seals it up good in a nice new envelope and goes to wait patiently by the door. It ain't quite morning bright but he knows the postman likes to beat the sun.
Sure enough not more'n a few m

Eyes to Tell by leyghan



Suggester says: This piece is fantastic for two reasons: 
an incredibly sinister atmosphere and perfect adherence 
to dialect. This flash fiction crafts such a story in so few words.

RebootI punched a kid twice in fifth grade for trying to see up Gemini Hetherington’s skirt when her twin brother was home sick. The Hetheringtons could get away with things like that if they ever lifted a fist in the first place, but for a Holthausen it was like a criminal offense, and all of the better-neighborhood parents gasped at the news and wondered what went wrong in my development. I sat in the car while the principal spoke to my dad about it. Through the window I heard him warn that I would no sooner be punching Walt Burtons in elementary than pulling a knife on a man for his wallet in adulthood, and that immediate correction was necessary unless he wanted me to wind up in jail with the rest of the scum of Airedale.
While my dad tried to calm the principal down, Gemini Hetherington tiptoed up to the window when her nanny was distracted. At first she signed ‘thank you’ to me through the window.  She breathed on the glass and drew a heart on the foggy circle. T

Reboot by Moonlightauthor



This short story introduces a new and intriguing world, 
and carries some hefty morals with it. 
Also, the opening line is great.

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
