For People Who Love Literature


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, We are always looking for members to donate. So please help the group out in way you can. 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.)

Now Accepting Affiliations!

If you wish to affiliate with us, your group must be that of literature, and represent the same qualities of written work that we represent.

Members Who Made It Big

This little space will be dedicated for the members who have had their works published. Please contact the group with a link to your work so we can all cheer for and support you!

AshATurner is publishing a book!

I am not dead, and neither is the group.  A lot has happened to me and I know NaNoWriMo is coming up so all members please participate and focus on that.

I know I mentioned a contest, I have had issues with my computer and those are solved... YAY!  

Admin News

As you may have noticed there are no Co-founders as of right now.  So it is just me and the Contributors making sure everything runs smoothly for this group.

I do have three potential new admins I talking to right now.  

If you are interested in an admin position, please note me.

Member News

Please keep in mind that a piece of work can only be in the group once.  As much as I would love to have multiple copies in various areas, DA only allows one to the group.  Even if it was submitted a week and half a go, I will look over it and make sure it is in the right folder.

No pictures As much as I love pictures as the next girl, you can not submit just a picture.  I don't mind a story in the comments for the regular folders but for the feature it has to be a document, not in the comments.  

Please read the rules on the front page of the group, they are there to help you.  If you have ANY questions you can ask.  I answer pretty quickly with what to do.  

Contest News
I have a contest idea but I need some help in judging it.  I am open for judges.

The literary theme will be focused around poetry.  So members who write, read, or really like poetry would help.  Please note me if you are interested.

Something different

When I started in this group I wasn't doing much.  I was just on here everyday, accepting peoples work, commenting, and answering member questions.  That was over 5 years ago (4 years since me being founder)  This group grew faster than I expected.  It slowed recently but that is fine, 5,000+ members and growing.    Its a little scary knowing that we were once at 500 members.  Even some of our members have made it big (granted their published work isn't in here but other works are) and they are still sending in stories.  I have so many things I would love to talk to the members about but I have no idea if you even read these, yet alone still are active in the group (nothing bad will happen if you aren't).  It's also nice to go through and see that a lot of members have not contributed anything yet, don't fret, I consider you the readers.

Where there are writers, there are readers.

Thanks for reading,

Hey You!

I have some piece of work I'd like to submit for approval for Featured folder but I'd like to ask a question regarding that matter, if You don't mind! :)

It is a chapter of an upcoming story, but I made a cliffhanger on purpose, splitting it into part .1 and part .2. 

Part .1 is pretty much a stand-alone piece of work but the summary and climax resides in part .2, which is in fact really compact - just a couple of paragraphs.

Would that be a problem, cause I don't want to waste anyone's time ( Neither mine nor Yours ) if it's a lost case from the beginning - due to that said split.

With best regards,
