Group Info

A listing of literature contests on deviantART.

Greetings and Welcome. Please read the rules below by clicking 'more'.:iconsmile--plz:

:bulletred::star::bulletred:Purpose: This group is nothing more or less than a listing of every literature contest I can find on dA. I got tired of combing through various other art contests in the hopes of finding literature ones. Here, they are gathered and listed according to deadlines. A one-stop place for us writers, if you will, and a sister group to #LiteratureForPoints.

Contests are in any written form whatsoever. Novella, comic, fan fiction, original piece, poetry. You name it, if it's literature of any kind, it's eligible.

:bulletred::star::bulletred:Function: To join, simply click on 'Join Group'. You should be automatically accepted. It's not necessary to join in order to have your contest listed, but joining would be nice.

There will be no gallery submissions at this time.

If you or someone you know is holding a contest, either leave a comment or note me. Please do not send notes directly to the group (unless it's an affiliate request) as the current admins are unable to access them.

Look out for the :new: contests!
