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.

Okey-doke. Sooooo I know I said I wasn't going to be able to update this thing anymore...buuuuut I've changed my mind! (It's MY mind and I'll change it if I want to! ;P) I just feel it's too useful a resource to let it go to waste.

SOOO...over the next few weeks I'm going to start compiling a list of lit contests together in the hope of starting this thing back up again. I'll put a tentative restart date of October 1st out there, with updates (again, tentative) posted every couple of weeks (give or take...tentative remember).

However this time around, I would love it if you guys could help out. As much as I love trawling DA looking for contests to share, there's no possible way I can capture all of them (I'm only human after all! :paranoid: ). So if y'all come across any lit contests in your DA travels, then please be so wonderful as to note me directly. Put "DALC Contest List" in the subject line and also make sure to include a link to the original contest journal in the body of the note.

Once we do start back up, in order to give folks a fighting chance with their entries, we'll post contests with a deadline date of no earlier than October 15th. So if you're sending me a note then please bear that in mind.

See you all back here, bright eyed and bushy tailed, on October 1st! :salute:

I do know of one specifically:  End of Summer Romance Lit Contest (Prose/Poetry)  :D

HugQueen also keeps a pretty good list in the Love DA Lit Journals, and her Menagerie of Literature Contests.

Even if I weren't already a helpful sort by nature, the Menagerie led me indirectly to my DD, so I owe you! :hug:

Tho, the RomanceforEveryone contest hasn't made its way in there yet...nudge, nudge.  ;P
