Literature Groups List

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 20, 2011, 9:14 AM
Literature Groups List

Few words on Groups VS. Clubs by the talented LadyLincoln -
Below you will find a wide variety of listings for a various selection of DeviantART Literature Groups and Clubs. This list is by no means complete, and if there are any additional ones you feel should be added, feel free to note leoraigarath and they will be added to the listing. Please be aware that Groups are not considered the same thing as Clubs. Clubs are considered to be standardized DeviantART-run accounts, and will have either a * or = symbol. Groups can be distinguished under the # symbols, and are maintained by their respective founders. If you have any questions about a particular group, it is always best that you contact its founder, co-founder, or various moderators. If you have any additional questions about how to go about creating a group, check out the FAQ.


New Groups: You have/heard of/participate in a group which is not listed - feel free to note me, leoraigarath, with your group's name, link and a 1-2 lines of About Us. Take heed - only LIT-RELATED groups will get into the list. Also please make sure that the groups/club have been active on the last month at least before submitting.

:new: = New additions to the list.

Remember the groups/clubs are here for you, participate, have fun, learn and respect those who invest a lot of time to make this community a community! Now dive in! :D

- Omri J. Luzon, leoraigarath

Nice one Omri :) can I suggest these guys to you?

#Literary-Perceptions

After the initial explosion of groups to an almost ridiculous extent, this is the only one I've stuck with following. Most groups accept a huge volume of submissions - which might seem superficially great in terms of exposure and opportunity - but mostly you just here people talking of over-saturation in their inboxes.

People building up to hundreds of deviations, then getting fed up and deleting them en masse doesn't get us anywhere.

#Literary-Perceptions do something qhich as far asI have seen is unique. They were accepting only 3 out of all submissions each day, but have recently just upped that to 5. This is a bit more restricted than most groups, but the slightly more rigorous selection process ensures that pretty much everything that comes through is certain to be cool and worthwhile.

In this way it's a bit more exclusive - like DLDs or The Favourites Project.

Shameless advertising :P but it's ok because I am not actually involved with managing the group in any way.

Peace.
