To Be Critiqued?

If you want any peice of yours to be critiqued, put it in the "To Be Critiqued" folder (one deviation per person every 30 days). Give thanks to eluvinari for volunteering to do this. :)
Well, it's now 1/25/14 and the deadline for the prompt has passed. Unfortunately, no one participated. xD' But I will continue to try to get more participation from the group! So continue to look for future journals.

Anyways, for now I thought I'd let you know about two 1000 point giveaways/contests. Both have to do with helping out the literature community so I highly encourage you to join. Best of luck to all participants!
1000 Point Giveaway! (closed)Hey there!
Let's try this giveaway again. :3 (fav this journal or share this on your own journal for a chance at 50 points but this does not enter you in to win the bigger prizes, read on for that!)
This is going to be a little simpler than last time. You must give two feedbacks on any literature pieces here on dA, you must fav this journal, and you must let your watchers know about it with your own journal. Your dA name will be tossed into a hat and I'll pick 4 winners at random.  If you'd like to increase your chances, you can write your feedbacks on two pieces that have been submitted to :iconliterature-and-stuff:
1. Feedback must be given from this day until 1/31/14. Not before, not after.
2. Feedback must be more than just 'cool, nice job, I like this'. Write what exactly you liked about it/what you didn't, what it made you feel, tips, etc. It doesn't have to be exactly that, I'm just giving some examples. It also doesn't have to be paragraphs long.
and 1000 Point Contest + Feedback for WritersI just had an idea for a giveaway and I really want to do it. This is dedicated to writers but if you’re not one and you’d like to participate for possible point prizes, then by all means, feel free to join!
So of course, you’re probably wondering what is this feedback and point giveaway? Well, let’s see if I can explain it without confusing anyone. Every writer wants feedback on their pieces but not all of them are willing to give some. So this giveaway will require that you both give and receive. By choosing to participate, you’ll be required to give feedback to those participating. No, you don’t need to give it to everyone participating, you can pick to who you give feedback to and how many pieces you read. You'll also be participating for a chance at 500 points so not only do you discover new writers, get feedback, but you might win some points too.  :D
As for the point giveaway part, the two best feedback givers will each receive 500 points

To Be Critiqued



Hello All! Welcome to Literature and Stuff!

While we have no problem with literature, some of the things people do can be harmful to the group. A couple rules before you decide to join:
1. No fighting between members/co-founders/contributors
2. The one who started the fight will be banned.
3. While this isn't detrimental to the group, we ask that if you submit to featured, please also copy into the genre folder that it belongs to. Thank you!
4. Please no overly sexual content in your stories. Erotica, hentai, yuri, and yaoi will not be accepted.
5. Please have respect for other members. Don't insult them in your critiques of their work, and in return, you can expect them to do the same.

Monthly contests will be held. You can choose whether or not to participate. Contests will be announced in the blog.

There will also be a monthly blog to showcase some of the best work. If you'd like to have your work considered, please note either me or one of the co-founders. To be considered, your work must be submitted in the gallery, and you must be a member of the group.

Thanks for listening!

Hey, guys. 
I just wanted to let you know that I no longer wish to be a contributer so I'm going to leave the group and then rejoin as a member.
specsbroodking Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Okay, no problem.
ShiyaHawk Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I was just wondering if there is a limitation on the number of submissions allowed per day?
gothikuk Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2013
don;t think so no, i know i've put a few things at once on, sure someone will correct me if i am wrong
specsbroodking Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Nope. As long as you don't submit like a hundred at once, there's no cap on submissions nor will there be.
ShiyaHawk Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Shoot, I got around 87 fanfics. ^^;
specsbroodking Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
lol No problem. Just don't submit them all on one day.
