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

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

:iconspoken-like-artists:

:new: VertigoArt is hosting his "Pass the Poem". He is the one who inspired me to do the one OUR group is doing. He is doing it in general, so there will be various others participating. If you liked being in our PTP OR didn't get a chance to sign up, here's your chance.

Pass The Poem 2014 - WorkingThe Poem
Staring into the sun, my mind binds itself to the rays
bending the supple limbs in search for celestial ghosts.
As the curtain swings to cover us, our secrets are safe.
I wonder, will time pass before the sun will again breach defenses?
I have often lost the minutes betwixt night and day,
and the kaleidoscope crepusculum colours me sightless
Leaving me in a daze
The air tastes of honeysuckle and mildew, strangely sweet,
reminding me of memories, and promises that I could not keep.
Moments lost, and sight be found,
I miss the moon, it's subtle glow amongst the dark.
Fantastic swirling galaxies haunt my waking dreams
or have they taken over my conscious thought?
Nothing is certain, safe for the minutes swirling by


I hosted the first Pass the Poem several years ago and had a great turn out. Since then I have done 3 other Pass the Poems and several other group collaborations. Other deviants and groups have adapted Pass the Poem for their own and brough




Two Thousand Words Project

:icontwothousandwords:

Two Thousand Words 2014:

"Two Thousand Words is an art and literature collaborative project, where artists and writers get to work together. Last round the writers went first and wrote up drafts and synopses, which the artists looked over and chose a project they wanted to create artwork for. This round however is going to be a reverse round. Meaning that now the artists are going to come up with their art first, and writers will choose something that inspires them to write an accompanying story or poem!"

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

Hello!

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 :-)
