Group Info

For lack of a better description, we're a group for the poetically inclined - people who can bend metaphors and similies to their will. Or, for poets who want to get noticed, showcase their work, or meet others similar to them. Anyone is welcome.

If you just want to join this group to boost up your number of groups, please don't join. We're a community for people who genuinely want to be in the group, rather than those who are going to use us.
There are no limits to how much you submit, but I will be accepting one piece per five minutes.
If your work doesn't fit in a folder, either message the group or ~Anatopist, and I'll open up a folder for you.
As far as competitions go, prizes are being debated. Please let me know if you think of anything.

Group Rules

Hi, all. I figured the group needed some rules, so, here we go.

:bulletred: If you want to join this group just to boost up your number of groups, or already submit your work to about 300 groups, your deviation will not be accepted unless it is really high-quality. This is simply to prevent people using us.
:bulletred: There are no limits as to how many pieces you can submit, but please try to avoid more than 10 an hour, which could lead to peoples' watches being clogged and your work not being read.

:bulletpurple: If your work doesn't fit in a particular folder, as in the folder is full or you don't feel yours is appropriate for it, message ~Anatopist and tell me the name of a folder you want opened.

:bulletblue: I'll be holding contests roughly every week or so. The prize is going to be any of these - of your choice - DeviantWatches, Llamas, favouriting any things of your choice in your gallery, a collab with me or a sketch.

:bulletgreen: This group is aimed at those who want writing help, to grow as writers, to find a friendly community, to take part in events and to get their work a little more noticed. Please try not to join if you are going to troll, belittle others, or are overwhelmingly famous already.

What you can submit:

:bulletgreen: Poetry of any form, any prose, short stories, songs, scripts, fanfiction. Please try to go easy on the extremely popular fanfics - though, submit if you like.

What you shouldn't submit:

:bulletred: Any personal attack on another Deviant/member of this group.
:bulletred: Extremely mature pieces - ie, no extreme erotica. Violence and profanity is allowed with a warning, but please, don't go overboard on the sex scenes.
:bulletred: No suicidal content or blatant self-injury content. With all due respect, some of our members could be triggered by some of this.

I do not mean any disrespect if your work is denied. If it is denied, consider this: could it trigger? Is there any vivid sex scenes? Is the grammar pretty bad? Does it contain vivid hate speech - ie, racism, religious hatred? If not, ask ~Anatopist why it was denied and perhaps I can provide a detailed explanation.

:bulletgreen: Lastly, PLEASE tell me if you think I'm doing anything wrong. I'm always open to your suggestions.
As we've only had two participants in our contest, I've extended the deadline to the 15th November!

The group hasn't been very active for a long time, no contests or anything. What's going on?
