Hello! Welcome to Literature Anonymous! This is a literary group for all types of literature.

:groups: Joining:
Everyone is allowed to join, just click the button! :eager:
Those who would like to be admins contact the group via note. You need to complete an application before joining.

:points:Donation Pool:points:
Hi, Our Super Group renewal is coming up. For all members and potential members, please donate to keep the group as it is. Please go to our founders page Tarelgal and donate. every little bit counts!

:gallery: Current Group Rules and FAQ: :gallery:

:bulletblue: What kind of literature do we accept? :bulletblue:

All genres of literature are welcome here, as long as it is submitted into the proper folder and follows DeviantArt policies. (So please, no poetry in the prose folder.)

:bulletred: How many deviations can I submit? :bulletred:

Since we are a rapidly growing group, we have decided to lower the submissions to TWO deviations a week, plus your ONE attempt to get a piece into the 'Featured' folder. (This has been implemented to keep your deviantWATCH box from getting overloaded, and to encourage members to only submit their best works instead of half their gallery.) For more details you can read the Help blog

:bulletred: All Gallery folders:
A single approval vote is needed for these submissions, however, this is only to have an overview of what's being submitted and if it's being submitted to the correct folder. There is a possibility to receive feedback or a friendly critique from one of the admins. If a submission has excessive errors and is determined to be of extremely poor quality, it may be denied.

:bulletred: The Critique Me folder:
This folder will now be open. so We can catch up and critique all the works that are in there now. If you want to have a piece critiqued then please Do not submit it to the regular folder. As Members you are only allowed a literary piece in the gallery once. So if you want it critiqued then hold onto it. Tarelgal will try to get as many done in that time frame.

:bulletred: The 'Featured' folder:
This folder features special works only. It requires TWO approval votes from the admins to be accepted. Please note that there is a TWO week deadline for all votes to be counted, and that your entry will not be accepted immediately. If, by any chance, your submission expires, there is a strong possibility that the votes tied. So please, be patient if you submit to this folder, and make sure it is your best work for us to showcase!

Our Featured quality guidelines are here: literatureanonymous.deviantart…

:bulletred: The 'Mature Content' folder: Up and open
This folder is specifically for submissions containing mature material, such as ones with strong sensual/sexual themes. Submissions are ONE per week in this folder All of these deviations must strictly follow DeviantArt policy Strong filters will also be required or your submission. If your submission does not have these filters then it will be denied. The Founder Tarelgal will heavily monitor this folder and ultimately determine what is acceptable and what isn't.

:bulletblue: Oh no! I've spotted a stolen work! :bulletblue:
Please do not submit any stolen works. You will be reported and removed from the group. (If you have spotted any written work that has been stolen, please contact the group immediately.)

:+fav: The Favourite Gallery :+fav:
All members are welcome to post their favorite literature here. Non-member works ONLY! Also, suggesting your own works is not allowed.
(Please note that the same rules for the group apply here.)

Hiya members, I thought that I would update everybody.   Remember if you are lost or unsure how to submit go here



:bulletyellow: May Winner is posted.  There was only one person who submitted a story so that person won.  June Contest just started, so please check it out.

:bulletorange: Donation Pool.  Please donate.  Our super group status ends at the end of the month.  You will be featured in the "Donation Pool" journal.  To donate please go to Tarelgal and donate, every little bit counts.



:bulletyellow: Summer Contest is posted.  You have all summer to work this so PLEASE do not rush your story.  The main prizes are Memberships from the Group!  Go check it out.

:bulletorange: MODERATOR POSITIONS are still open.  Please check the "Moderator Positions"



:bulletyellow: :iconilluminateshadowx: is looking for beta readers and/or editors.  Please visit his profile page if you are interested.


And now something different.

I am currently planning on attending Project A-kon this coming weekend.  So if you don't hear from me all weekend, I am there (most likely waiting in a line -_-').  I will still check on here, if I remember.  I will also be working my two fanfictions now over the next few months.  All your work will still get in, just be patient.  What does this mean for you, do not submit pieces one day then be impatient and submit the SAME piece the next day.  


Your stuff will get in I am sure of it.  


Your, stomach grumbling and I am hungry, Founder

Hey! I submitted two chapters of my story (The Black Queen) 6 days ago, and it hasn't been approved or declined. Is there anything wrong? o.o did I put it on the wrong folder?

I'm a little confused why my request to join was declined. Are there certain restrictions? Should I try again?

Sorry to ask, but is the group administration still active? My submission is in approval stage since the 18th and I prefer it to be rejected than to wait for my request to be expired...

I'm trying to submit chapters of my story "The Last World War," but they never get accepted.  What's the problem?

WHich folder would a short, personal non-fiction belong to? It's... depressing and kind of poetic.

Hello! I am Medi, and my partner is Strong. We are looking to join contests, participate in trades (Sorry, we only provide literary deviations!), receive prompts, or anything else that will challenge us. There is a general consensus of things we will and won't do on our profile, don't be afraid to throw ideas! Ideas that are used will be credited by whomever gave it to us.
