Tidbits & Goings-ons Around the Literature Community :pumpkin:

more or less, what's going on around our Authors-Club community

{message from the team}
Hello, lovelies. It's October, which means Halloween is nigh. I hope all is well in your lives. Our administration has been incredibly busy lately; therefore, there isn't a large Halloween-themed contest this October. Yet, we hope to reach out to our members and get the party started! Let us know what you would love to do: micro-contest, riddles, features, flash fiction, etc.

:bulletorange: Meet a Writer Forum

We aim to get all 2,500ish of our members to mingle. It doesn't matter whether your single or hitched, just mingle.

:bulletblack: Coffee-covered Love Contest

If you're confused, don't be. We are going to be hosting a contest eventually. We want your thoughts, please and thank you! Send us a note or comment and satisfy your sweet tooth with some brownie points.

:bulletorange: Prose-ject S.T.O.R.M

Our own kiwi-damnation is hosting an event "for August, September and October, we will be brain S.T.O.R.M-ing and creating stories in a community atmosphere. The goal of these few months is to feel supported and challenged, and to feel like we accomplish something, even if we can't quite manage 50k of NaNoWriMo. At Prose-ject, we are about growth, and slowly but surely, we want to grow with you." The project is in its last month — get started today!

:bulletblack: For the Playwright and Singer-Songwriter

For the Playwright is where all completed plays of any genre belong.
Singer-Songwriter hosts all completed works of literature that are original songs.

Things That Go Bump

Every time we post a journal/blog, we will feature the work of three members. The following prose/poetry will go into the Feature folder with our stamp of approval. Feel free to note the group to submit requests.

:thumb632097401: When a Seed Is PlantedHis arms are pinned to his sides and his throat chokes with dirt.
He tries to cough, tries to swallow, but nothing loosens. The weight of the earth presses down on his ribs; the twigs and roots threaten to pierce through his flesh. He can’t breathe. He can’t breathe. He can’t breathe.
His mouth spills over with soil, while his nostrils are clogged with it. All is dark. He wants to escape into sleep but his pounding heart forbids it.
He can feel his panic leaking out of him, as sweat, as tears, as saliva.
The earth embraces him and will not let him go. Finally, his fingers tangle themselves around the roots. He pulls hard.

Board of Trustees

Each trustee has been carefully selected from a large pool of literarily lovely applicants. They are the most devout and hardworking of deviants.

When time allots and we require a new member to join our ranks, we will post a journal with the details. Until then, we are not seeking any new admins.

Hi, I just joined but before doing so read the rules of the group. A heads up I want give about my submissions to this place. My fan fictions are presented in PDF format and in so always have cover images. So when you see what appears to be art submitted .. well you'll see otherwise when clicking on it.

Hello! I am a young developing author willing to share my unique writing with anyone on deviant. I am unsure if I will be able to post 3 times per week due to the amount of schoolwork that may be prepared for me in the future. Within my writing plans I have been starting of with a story I will hopefully be able to grasp together sooner enough. Hopefully you will accept my request ^^

Hello, i'm looking to join your group. I've been sticking strictly with author's universe for some time, but it's small, and not really going anywhere. I wanted to join a group that didn't have TOO many members, but had enough that there was garunteed to be people watching.

Unfortunately, i'm not the best at spelling, I tend to go with the flow more than anything, and just make corrections when I notice them. As long as the point gets across that's all I care about. If that's a problem, let me know so I can looks elsewhere. My earliest works are abysmal in this regard, and I just can't find the time to fix them, but I have long since improved.

Lastly, some general questions. I do mostly OC stories, but I have started to dabble in a fanfic or 2, so what all genre's do you accept? I majorly write fantasy, but I have some sci fi and romance, among other genres.

I'd like to join and share my writing but first I need to know this group's stand on mature writing. I don't censor my characters so there is mild swearing, sexual scenes (cut before explicit) and a bit of violence. None of it goes against dA's rules, just wondering about the club's stand on it. I have the mature filter active on almost all of my writing.
