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:

November 2014
December 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!

Suggester says: When you have trouble sleeping at night, do you find you're worrying about the what ifs, the unknown moments?  Wrangling those fly-away fears in is one of the hardest things to do.

I Wanted to Be One TooHave you ever seen stars
in broad daylight before?
It's really a beautiful thing -
they're always fighting
to shine even brighter
than the sun they revolve around,
and their glittering eyes
always look toward
the sky
The moon and the sun and
those galaxies and shooting stars
are all so beautiful,
but every time I tried to fight
to become one too,
I learned that I couldn't
breathe in places
with no oxygen
Those were the glory days
when I still had time left -
I fought in sweat, tears and blood
and without any breath in my lungs
to try and catch up, but now
I have fallen down
and it's unnecessary
to get back up
There's nothing to
fight for anymore
Let me tell you a bittersweet
story using six words:
I loved those stars
so much
I wanted to be one too
In the sun,
their eyes sparkle
even brighter than diamonds
because the dreams they carry
are worth nothing
and yet they are

A beautiful poem, themed on aspiration and dreams of being something more, written with a soulful grasp of word choice and imagery. A pure gem.

AnomicI wish I took more time to notice how lonely Isaac was. Loud and witty, one would have thought that he would constantly be surrounded by hoard of laughing friends. In a way, he was… but they laughed at him more than with him.
People made fun of his reactions more than anything. Describing him as expressive just covered the surface of how he showed his feelings. When he was surprised, everyone knew he was surprised. He just had this way of saying, “What?!” that made it seem like it was the first time he’d ever heard of what he just did. His laugh was just a bit too boisterous for anyone’s taste, whether the actual one or the one where he emphasized “HaHAHa”. It was always a bit too much.
He was eccentric, to say the least. While he shared similar likes and dislikes with us, he always stood out in the wrong way. When asked, no one could really define what made him so different -- he just was. He was tall and a bit on the chubby side

Suggester: "A short but powerful piece that will open your eyes to the lonely and the unwanted."

A Good Story"Don't you love looking at the stars?"
"I sure do."
"What do you think when you look at them?"
"I think about what I cannot see."
"What do you mean?"
"Well when I look at the stars, all I see are bright white dots in an endless black sheet, but that tends to get boring fast. So instead I imagine how others see it. When a child who just lost his mom looks at them, he might be thinking that his mom is just watching him from above. When astronomers stargaze, they might be more interested in the actual distance and physical properties. When the astrologists look at them, they think about the shapes they represent and how their locations affect their lives. And that's just what I can recall from experience in this world. Perhaps there are extraterrestrials looking at the stars, or mythic creatures dancing and bathing in the showering light, or perhaps the black endlessness is literally the blanket of god. Too bad god keeps forgetting to mend the sheet, that's probably where the light comes

A vignette that wonders at imagined stories and implications.

I'm a bit new to Deviantart, so forgive me if the answer is obvious. IS there anyway to see the Pick of the Day for previous days? If so, how?
