Favourites

The pieces in our favorites are those that were suggested by the members then voted on by the staff of The Favorites Project. Anything in our favorites received a majority vote and is definitely worth your time!

Submission Rules

In order to ensure fairness and consistency, and to make things a bit easier on the LITplease staff, please read and adhere to the following submission rules:

:bulletyellow: You may only submit something to our gallery if it is intended specifically for one of our contests or prompts (general or random submission will not be accepted).

:bulletyellow: Your deviation must be submitted directly to the appropriate gallery. The gallery folders are neat and clearly labelled for everyone's use.

:bulletyellow: All submissions must have a line in the deviation comment indicating which prompt or contest category it is intended for, preferably with a link. This is to ensure less confusion down the line as more prompts and contests emerge.

Please make sure you read these rules before submitting. It will make things super easy for you and for us!

Group Info

LITplease offers great opportunities for writers to practice their craft through prompts, contests, workshops, and other projects aimed at flexing those writing muscles. LITplease will continue to find ways to be innovative and enthusiastic for the sake of deviantART and its writers!

So poke around a little--don't worry, we're not shy.
