Happenings in the Literature Community

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 13, 2013, 2:42 AM

There are a lot of things going on in the literature community right now so I thought it would be a good idea to share these resources and events with you. I will update this regularly as new events come and go. So if you know of anything going on or have an event you'd like featured please let me know!

The Scratching Post Edition 2: CritiquesTWM Scratching Post
:wave: hi there everyone! I’m Rose (aka InklingsOfOblivion) and today I bring you TWM’s latest edition of the Scratching Post which focuses on GIVING critiques.
Before we embark on our journey together, I’ve collected up some articles that have been written by others: what I love is that everyone has a slightly different take on critiquing , bringing a new perspective and fresh ideas to the table.
LiliWrites – this one also has a whole bunch of other articles at the end, be sure to check it out

Literature Community Contests/Activities

:new: New Group ran by SetfiretotheOcean


Writing Resources

Live-Love-Write has a new program designed to provide participants with somebody they can count on for help and readership. Participants will be assigned in pairs, and each member in a pair will tutor and critique the other, help with inspiration and writing, and participate in monthly projects and contests.

A great group to check out, especially if you are low on prompt ideas. They have a large list of some here:…

The Literature Community Experiment
New to the literature community? Or perhaps you are just wondering who the community is? Come and introduce yourself!

My Prompt Journal
The Literature Community Experiment continues with the showing and sharing of untold numbers of prompts.

The Latest Love dA Lit Issue (by the amazing HugQueen)
Every Sunday this article will aim to promote volunteer opportunities, various resources, prompts, challenges, and workshops, as well as highlighting various contests. This is by no means a complete list of all the literature going-ons, merely a tool to help you get involved and stay informed.

A group whose purpose is to get you writing a little every day. They want to inspire you! So why not let them?

Hi! I just sent a joining request, and I have a question about your prompts: can we only submit recent pieces for them, or old ones too?
Medoriko Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2015  Student Writer
You must write a piece specifically for the prompt. Old pieces won't be accepted.

Thanks for the info.  :)
I just sent a joining request again since, apparently, the old one wasn't accepted.

I'm ~Treo-LeGigeo from #Teenage-Writers and we've been running a large art/lit collaboration project, which  just got its own group #TwoThousandWords. We're hoping to spread the word to build up watcher numbers come posting in November, and also for future rounds of the project. I'm not sure if this counts as news, but if you could drop us in it would be very much appreciated :-)

Such journals are always helpful! I was unaware of many of the contests ^^;
