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.)

Okay members,

I know that it has been awhile.  I am sorry for not doing this earlier.  As you may have noticed we went super.  I have my reasons behind it mainly because only one of my admins have read the stories for the summer contest and posted her choices to me. I have read them all and I still can't decide the top three.  There are only seven.  literatureanonymous.deviantart…

So I decided to post a poll for the members to vote.

Top votes will get the first prize.

Second will get the second prize

and third will get the third prize.  

I know how many active members there are, they submit works at least once a week.  I will keep the poll up until end of April by then we should be working on the next summer contest so if you have ideas, let me know.

So what I am asking is that members vote for the story you like the most.  Since you can only vote once.   If you want to do it as rankings vote for number one and comment with number two and three for your choices.

This will help a lot.

Thanks Members!!

Your awesome, but really cold, founder

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,

I have works I've marked as mature because of language and violence, but they don't have any sex in them -- would they need to go into the 'mature content' folder?
