Group Information

Joining Rules:


1. You have to write.
2. You have to like critiques and be willing to learn how to give them if you don't already know.
3. You have to press the join button and write that you've read Rule 4 of the Submissions Guidelines (Please really do so).

How this group works:
The members submit to the gallery pieces they would like critiqued. These go into specific folders. 1 is for the fluffy bunnies and 5 is for those people who want their butts kicked.

Personal insults are not allowed.

Specific constructive criticism according to critique level is encouraged.

When the member has improved their piece significantly, to the point that the other members in this group recognize them for their efforts (without resubmitting the deviation to their gallery again), we'll feature them.

If you get published, we'll celebrate with you.

We also do tutorials and features in the journal.

Submission Guidelines:
1. It must follow all DA rules. (This should be a no duh) This includes that it must be your original work.
2. We take poetry and prose. We take mainly fiction and memoir, but we will take non-fiction. Fan fiction we won't take unless for grammar checks. This is better submitted to a fan fiction group of your fandom than here. We also take writing tutorials.
3. Submit the deviation to the correct critique level folder. (This is for browsers of the group).
4. You MUST include the following in your submission's author notes.

One sentence summary
Make it easy for people to figure out what your work is about. The words "I suck at summaries" and "Please read and review" don't count. Don't include.

One Sentence summary for chapters (For novels only) To catch up your reader so they know if they read this chapter or not.

Genre/Form Specific genre... Like High Fantasy Poetry

Critique Requested Example, Character help, grammar, etc.

Critique tolerance1-5 (1 is fluffy bunnies. 5 is Witch burning) Restate it for the members who are browsing via their own messages.

The wording is "Be willing to learn". So are you willing to learn?

You also have to read submission guideline 4...

I'd just like to say thank you very much for letting me join this group. I hope I can help others improve on their writing, and in turn improve myself. Thanks again!

Quick question: I wanted my story to be in the "Witch Burning" critique level, but it ended up in the Fluffy Bunny folder. Anyone know how I can move it? ^^;

When you submit, be sure to use the drop down menu. I can move it, but in the future, please submit to the right folder. =P If too many people make such requests, I'll ask them to resubmit instead.
