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.

... Tumblr. Yes, I am now free of Tumblr. I am now capable of using DeviantART without having to worry about a website I don't even use.

I want to celebrate! Any suggestions?

The best suggestion will earn:

:bulletred: A Feature from me on as many Deviations of your choice,


:bulletyellow: Your very own character in upcoming stories! And, yes, your character can also have a Guest Star role!,


:bulletgreen: Comments on Deviations of your choice.


:bulletblue: A FREE Journal Skin! Even the really, really pricey ones!

You can select a combination of two from above, if you wish.

All other participants will be entitled to having a Feature, or a Comment on one Deviation of their choice, from me, as a token of my gratitude for your participation.

The contest ends on: February 7th, 2015.

The contest ended on: February 7th, 2015, at: 2:00 PM. Thank you to everyone for their entries!

About Love dA Lit

The Community Portal will be housing all the resources previously found on Love dA Lit! I'll only be mentioning any new resources and a few other categories in the article. The full list will be posted every week with the Community Portal. :eager:

Love dA Lit is published every Sunday, by IrrevocableFate via news article, and the Community Portal will be updated in accompaniment with it!

Love dA Lit aims to promote volunteer opportunities, various resources, prompts, challenges, and workshops, as well as highlighting various contests, and spotlighting a specific group every week. This is by no means a complete list of all the literature going-ons, merely a tool to help you get involved and stay informed.
