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:

September 2014
October 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!

The Martyrdom of Leaves in AutumnAutumn blazes forth with love,
 A love that, greening, climbing, grew
 Through summer's heat, baptized with dew,
 Sustained from springtime's seedlings new,
 Til ripened, filled to bursting through,
Exulting, greets its time to die.
For God had planted nature's birth,
 With love He scattered sunlight's glow,
 With love He showered water's flow,
 With love He breathed the windy blow,
 And thus, when plants soon die in snow,
His garden burns with love returned.

The Martyrdom of Leaves in Autumn by bloodysalvation

This beautiful poem examines nature
a unique and blazing light.

Happy as a Fruit FlyOnce in a near and far-away land
There was a blind ogre who sang in a band
The drummer, an octopus, with warts on his toes
Never did mind he hadn’t a nose
They played on a park-bench, near a bent swing
A field mouse on trumpet, the dog tickled strings
Having no bagpipes, a very strange thing
The python attempted to dance Irish fling
The stage-hands were butterflies, though one was a slug
Who slithered along and drank from a mug
Never cared much for music; and don’t ask me why
But here I relented—happy as a fruit fly

Happy as a Fruit Fly by rlkirkland

Suggester says: A silly, light-hearted bit of fun
with clever rhymes and a clearly built scene.

Angelaa Dimension 258 short story
Rosie picked up her clock again and stared at the numbers. When the big blue hand reached the 12, her daddy would come home. She furrowed her brow and squinted at the tip of the blue hand. Once, she had seen it move. But now it was stuck by the 10.
“Rosie, why do you keep watching the clock?” Leo asked. “Are you not having any fun building?”
Rosie set the clock next to her pile of toy bricks. “Today’s special day,” she announced. “Daddy’s bringing home a lady.”
“Ohh.” Leo raised his eyebrows. “He’s got a new girlfriend?”
“Yep! He says, he’s been seeing her for a while, he says he likes her a lot. He says she’s super nice.” Rosie paused to spit some hair out of her mouth.
“Here. Scoot over here and I’ll braid your hair,” Leo said. Rosie scooted and he began pulling her hair away from her face. “My hair us

A sweet, well-written story that portrays
a cheerful, loving voice that only a child could possess.

AthleticismApplying an adhesive bandage to the young man’s wrist, Matthew said apologetically, “I’m sorry you have to wear a Band-Aid with Cinderella on it.”
Seated on a leather barstool, Jesse’s eyes remained lowered on the quartz countertop as he spoke, “It’s fine.”
“You know, Jesse,” Matthew began with a sigh. “It doesn’t make you any less of a man because you don’t enjoy playing football.”
Clasping his fingers around Jesse’s wrist he didn’t appear surprised when he heard him cry out in pain, “It appears you sustained more than a mere scrape during your game.”
“It isn’t broken,” Jesse muttered under his breath.
Matthew agreed, “No, it isn’t but you’ve certainly hurt it. You’ll need to rest it a few days. I saw you throw with your left hand earlier. You’re not a lefty are you?”
“I’m ambidextrous.”  

Athleticism by LovablePunk

This piece uses well-written dialogue
to show a touching scene.

VerlorenEgal was du denkst, du warst mein Licht.
Doch meine Gefühle interessieren dich nicht.
Ich komme mir vor als red' ich gegen die Wand.
Die Liebe, die Frau an meiner Seite verschwand.
In meinem Herzen nur noch Leere wohnt.
Glaub' nicht das sich der Besuch noch lohnt.
Nun geh' ich wieder mal allein',
Durch eine Welt von Trug und Schein.
Der Eine liebt die Falsche, denn Sie liebt ihn nicht zurück.
Das Glück nicht mehr zu suchen ist für manche schon das Glück.
Was interessiert es mich wer noch da ist für mich?
Hier interessiert sich doch jeder nur noch für sich!
Lange glaubte ich diesen Mythen über Liebe.
Doch ich bekam nur Seitenhiebe.
All diese Worte doch die Gefühle geh'n nicht weg.
Hoff' noch immer das mich dieser Engel weckt.
Gut geht es dir, denn du bist nicht mehr hier.
Freut mich für dich, nur was ist mit mir?
In ein paar Monaten fährst du 'nen Golf.
Und vergessen ist der einsame Wolf.
Geh' durch die Stadt, mit der Zeit verlier'

Verloren by IzeBerg92

Traditional versed poem, inspired by love,
telling the story of someone who has lost his love
to someone else. Love grief in metaphorical pictures.

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?
