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!

A well told, poignant narrative.

encourages the reader to consider the consequences that
technology could have on the human race.

Inhuman   We hadn't been humans since they took us from our homes, dragging us across a bullet soaked main street to the sound of government issued combat boots and savage cries.
   For three weeks we were held in a glorified basement, fed sunlight through a small window high upon the filthy wall. Women wept over hollow children bathed in flickering electric lights and fat, buzzing flies.
   But then the Doctor came and people started draining off the cracks on the floor. Suddenly, we were only ten and began developing a pavlovian response to the click of the door latch. I was the last to be taken, my stomach sewn onto my back and my stomach crusted over layers of dead skin and miscellaneous fluids, M14s hurrying my shaky steps.
   I was finally delivered into a dark room and strapped onto a padded chair. The harsh lights were turned on when he arrived, forcing wonky shapes to writhe beneath my eyelids. My eyes swam in boiling tides
Every word hooks you until your drowning in
the atmosphere and overwhelmed by the dark subject
matter. A tragic story beautifully told.

I've Got My Finger on the TriggerI've got my finger on the trigger.
It took the better part of an hour to make the climb from where you forced my fighter into the dirt to this rocky outcrop overlooking your crash site. I've got the high ground now, and you don't stand a chance.
Through the sight on my long gun I watch as you frantically dart towards your burning ship, only to be forced back by the flames again and again. I don't quite see the point, you can't put the flames out, and even if you could it's never going to fly again. Niether will you once I get tired of watching your futile antics.
From here your ship doesn't look nearly as fierce as our mission briefing described. It was hard to make out as we flashed past each other in the silent duel of space, or even in the frenetic dogfight once we'd punctured each others hulls and been forced to take refuge in the lower atmosphere. You fought like a champion, I'll give you that.
Funny, now that it's sitting still, your fighter looks more like a crop duster with gun

Suggester: "With a surprising twist at the end,
this flash fiction piece will leave readers on
the edge of their seats."

Foreign Language

A short text about what life is and
what it could be. A beautiful written explanation of life.

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?
