#LITplease is an almalgamation of two of the longest standing literature groups on dA: PoetryPlease and ProsePlease. So, while the LITplease account is only a few years old, the group itself has been around forever!
The Founder, `ATrue was in charge of PoetryPlease since 2006 and ProsePlease since 2008. Recently, she passed on the torch to the newest founder, xmoonshinedreamersx
. Several of the staff members, particularly ones that work with The Favorites Project, have been around nearly as long, and many staff members have left and come back, which just goes to show how dedicated our staff can be. All staff members are treated fairly, are given opportunities to take initiative and try new projects, and their input into the group is always valued.
A Friendly Hello from your New Founder!
