Guidelines

:bulletred: Poetry only.
:bulletblack: One deviation per folder per week.
:bulletred: With the exception of To-be-Critiqued which is just one per month.

:bulletblack: Please, oh please, put your things in the right place. The folders have a description if you are unsure.
:bulletred: Be civil. This is a rule, not a guideline. If it is brought to my attention that someone is being mean or inappropriate, I will not hesitate to remove you from this group.

It is simply as simple as that.

This one's for the writers, the ones who slice open their souls day in and day out, and get so little feedback in response. We need to be there for each other. We need to respond to our friends' uploads as often as we're able, as kindly as we can. No, I'm not suggesting you lie, but do remember someone just offered themselves up on the slab, so the least we can do is respect the corpse. :)

I recently self-published my third book, but my friends and family members haven't been there for me as much as I wish they would. Some have helped me, and some haven't. That's life, I suppose, but here's why I'm telling you.

We all go through the same feelings. We upload our poetry to groups like this one, and some of you upload your prose or other art to dA as well, and then we wait. We don't constantly refresh our pages (although maybe sometimes we do...a little...right?). We just want feedback. We want praise and favorites, sure, but even more than that, we just want some response at all. We crave feedback. We crave response. We crave acknowledgement that what we created does in fact exist.

So that's it. That's all I wanted to say. Just a reminder to all of you (and yes, to myself too) that we should try to be there for each other. Don't have time? Add a smiley face to a friend's post now and then, or say, "Well done!" or, I dunno, something! Just be there for people. And I genuinely hope they will in turn be there for you too!

Hang in there, writers! And let's keep supporting each other every chance we get! :)

-Sean

Hi there! 
I'm an artist and Illustrator from India.
I do a lot of graphic design work, and if any of you awesome writers would ever need a cover designed for a book/novel/journal/ or any character sketches to go with you stories or any illustration for stories or poems or prose, note me and I'd love to be commissioned by you and help you with the same.
Check out my work at

Thanks and Regards
Jyotsna

I think this group is great. It's a wonderful place to get your work noticed in. I love it, and I don't think my poems would have gotten any views if it weren't for this group.

Aww, what a nice thing to say, but keep on getting your work out there.  Responding to other people's poems from the group is a great way to get more people commenting on your work too. :)

This will happen, although try to do exercises now and then to keep in practice, just for your own sake...and maybe for your own sanity too haha. -Sean
