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:

January 2015
February 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!

secretMy secret garden, far from
the aristocratic moors, the buried keys, the
overrated roses of the English,
lies behind the hospital parking garage
between East River and Broad.
I look down at it from the sunset streaks
that only touch the top story of the lot.
I look down at it through the reaching tree branches.
The security camera watches me look.
The concrete steps blunt,
the windows threatening jaggedness
escort my shoes and the tips of my toes
in a stretched spiral while
my eyes linger above.
They watch my hands push the ground floor door
that’s locked from the outside, they watch
as I walk along the bare brick of the wall,
turn the corner of the building
and step from twilight to night
under the trees on the bank of the river.
The river runs parallel to the parking garage
with a stretch of grass that’s always mowed in between.
There’s a chain link fence keeping the trees back.
There are lightning bugs here,
in this garden
while my eyes, overhead,
lean out far.

The idea of a "secret garden" is ripped from the pomposity of Romantics and flipped into something more contemporary and urban.

catching sand He had a habit of catching things.
Usually, good things. A basketball, or a cat falling from a tree, or his baby sister, one memorable time, as she fell out of her crib.
It was instinct to him, second nature. He didn't need to think about it—his hands acted independently from the rest of him, completely on their own accord, risk and volition. His hands, to him, were unbearably selfish. They thought very little of consequence. Didn’t the care about the potential pain? Did it matter to them that what they caught might. . . hurt?
He was still rather young the first time he caught a knife that had fallen off the kitchen counter. He caught it, unfortunately, by the blade. It sliced cleanly into the chubby flesh of his little boy palms. His mother saw the blood spilling from his hands and screamed, uncurling his fingers from around the knife. She shrieked at him, her voice shrilly with fear. Why had he held onto it like that? Why did he catch it in the first place?

Suggester says: This story is captivating and beautifully executed. The prose is beautiful, and throughout the piece the author uses the motif of catching things as they fall to convey a heartbreaking tale. It had me hooked from beginning to end.

BetrayersIt is the 53rd year of the Omega Century and sex between a boy and a girl can get you killed. Well, at least I think all kinds of sex does but really there’s only one that we treat special. I’ll get back to it. We call it the Omega Century because that is when the True Genders took over. My teacher said it happened because there were too many babies in the world and not enough older people to take care of them. So the True Genders made it so we don’t have too many babies anymore and so that we don’t suffer. When we are old enough, we can choose a man to love, and if you prove yourselves to be True Men you can get assigned little boys to take care of. But there are some people who don’t want to love in their gender. The men call them ‘Betrayers’, my older brother Olsen says it used to be called ‘being straight.’ But some Betrayers are different from others. Most end up going away in Purple Vans to a Blue Facility or a Pink Facility,

An intriguing sci-fi story reminiscent of novels like The Hunger Games and Brave New World.

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?
