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:

April 2015
May 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!

Suggester says: The poem really struck a cord with me, as self-esteem issues are something I have to grapple with on a regular basis.

DesiccationThe backdoor was always locked, a heavy deadbolt of a lock, almost too difficult to throw back, even for a grown man. The most secure door in the whole house no doubt. So he couldn’t have gotten out that way. And all the doors upstairs creaked with weathered age or slid rough in their tracks, grating plastic on metal. The door off the sunroom, though, held potential.
    This was the basement that still haunts my memory: one bedroom, a den and a short connecting hallway that ended in a bathroom. The great room, long and thin, was mirrored to the north by a hallway that connected a half kitchen and laundry room. Then a workroom that in my memory was as big as my entire childhood home, unfinished floors filled with books and wood working tools, the materials of my grandparents’ obsessions.
    Beyond that room was the sunroom, and though the door would have been difficult to get to through all the discarded beach toys and household paraphernalia, escape it

Suggester: "A non-fiction piece with just the right amount of nostalgia, mystery, and eeriness. as much as it brings chills to my spine, it gives me a feeling of relief at the end in spite of the heartbreaking truth."

--At first, she made dirty jokes, swore too much, and wore much more black than anyone should care for. She got annoyed far too easily and cared way too much. She wanted everyone to be happy, but she wasn't trying to please anybody by changing into something she wasn't. She'd make fun of herself and always found something humorous in any situation. She was attracted to the dark and abnormal. She was passionate, cynical, and strong. She was unapologetically herself.
Dig a little deeper, and you'll notice the bright blush across her face when she presented in class. You'll hear the softness in her voice when a teacher called on her, and realize that she never raised her hand, or greeted people first in the hallway. She always apologized first, often excessively. She felt bad for things that weren't her fault. She was the first to hold someone's hand when they were scared, and the last to give up on something that was important to her. She was shy, insecure, emotional and compassionate. She

A truly wonderful and beautifully honest piece of prose.

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

I'll try my best to be more active and supportive whenever I find the time.
