House Rules

The purpose of Writers-and-Editors is to encourage writers through friendly critique.

:bookdiva: Joining :bookdiva:

:bulletblue:There are no requirements for joining. We are not elitists; beginning writers are also welcome. You don't have to be a writer—editors, people with OCs, readers etc. are all welcome. Member requests are automatically approved!

:bookdiva: Submitting :bookdiva:

:bulletblue: This group is friendly for all ages. Mature content goes in the mature content folder! It does not have to be labeled as mature to count. We can't have any unlabeled mind-scarring material for innocent young deviants to read. Mature content includes (but is not limited to) profanity, blood, gore, and sexual themes. We may move deviations ourselves. If the folder gets flooded, don't worry. That's my job. I'll make subcategories.

:bulletblue: Currently, religious content is allowed PROVIDED THAT it is not overly offensive to people of any religious or ethnic group. Deviations that are considered offensive will be removed from the gallery.

:bulletblue: Currently there are no submission limits.

:bulletblue: You cannot submit to the featured gallery. We will move things there if we wish to highlight them. No deviations with mature content will be submitted to the featured folder

:bulletblue: Please read the folder descriptions in the gallery and submit to the correct folder. If you accidentally submit to the wrong folder, please tell us and we'll move it.

:bookdiva: Critique :bookdiva:

If you are looking for a critic or wish to be one, please comment on this blog entry!

:bulletblue: Please be polite and mature when critiquing others' works. Remember, a good critic provides just enough suggestions to help the writer improve, and just enough praise to help their confidence grow! Here is a helpful resource.

:bulletblue: Please do not overreact to critique! Receiving critique is one of the best ways to improve your writing. If you don't want suggestions on improving your work, don't submit it here.

:bulletblue: Admins are improving too! We enjoy getting critiques on all our deviations here. We're not going to ban you if you point out that we used an adjective where an adverb belongs.

:bookdiva: General Conduct :bookdiva:

:bulletblue: Critiquing is encouraged. Being mean, rude, biased, offensive or a general :trollface: is not. You will be warned for offensive conduct. If it continues, we may block you from the group.

:bulletblue: Please critique or comment on submitted works! The goal of Writers-and-Editors is to help each other improve.

:bulletblue: If you are having a group-related issue, please note us. If your problem involves people breaking the etiquette policy, a bug within dA itself, or something that you don't think a W-and-E admin could solve, please contact the help desk.



This seems to be a bit messed up... it never matches our pageviews... either that or a ton of invisible people stop by every day.

Our favorites are full of tons of resources and excellent examples of good writing! If you see one of these, then feel free to submit them!

(Member resources and writings belong in the gallery, of course, where they're certain to get much more attention anyway.)
2 :new: contests have been added!

--Also, you may notice that some of the contests listed below do not have poetry or prose specified. This is because the contest allows both or I have not been able to determine if they want one or the other specifically.

Let's get this boat rolling with updates again! Remember to send me a contest that is Literature specific if you know of one not listed from Deviantart.
Are you finding it difficult to be inspired? Are you tired of the mundane routine? Are you looking for a fun, new way to write creatively?  
We would like to begin listing Literature-specific contests for your leisure to look through.  A contest is a great way to start a new form or writing, think about a theme a different way, or even just to try something unusual to your daily routine. :)  We hope this list is a help to all who look forward to discovering contests and embarking on a fresh path.
The list of critics can be found here++  writers-and-editors.deviantart…

Is there anyone here who could help with creative writing/editing? 

I'm not the best of writers, but i like to think that I've gotten a little better since i started posting my work. I'm not really looking for a Critic, though i'm open to Criticism if it's positive. I've posted some fanfictions, however i'm no overly concerned about those, (i'm going back and rewriting them slowly), but i am concerned about a new collab-RP- Story i want to post. 

Is there anyone here who could possibly help me? 

Thank you.

I would like some Criticism and feedback for my Naruto fanfictions. They are Hinata couples and Ino couples :) I'm a romance writer with some humour or drama so if not don't look. I don't know what to put but here is my fanfiction profile with the stories.  or you can just note me on here thank your for your time :)

Please contact our critic volunteers here in the following journal link. Each person has listed what they will and will not critique along with ways to contact them. If you have any more questions, please let me know.

Hope this helps!

If you didn't want to post your art up on da, could you send a link to a private betatester in :) Just curious.
bookloverblue Sep 20, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Do you accept scripts?
MissLunaRose Sep 20, 2013   General Artist
Yes! :aww:
bookloverblue Sep 21, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Thanks - aside from Mature Content, where would these go?
MissLunaRose Sep 21, 2013   General Artist
Probably "Other" for now, since we don't currently have a scripts folder. :)
I have some fics that I'd like to submit but I don't know which folder to submit them to.:|
u-fido-u Sep 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
We have a specific fan fiction folder for fan fictions. :) If it's not, then just pick the category it fits best. Thank you for submitting! Please let us know if you have any more questions.

Hello everyone!

I am currently offering a speed critiquing service for those who want to get professional standard feedback on their prose writing/or poems at a cheap price. I've just finished my latest 45,000 editing/proofreading job and I'm looking for new works!

You could have your short story, the first chapter of your novel or one-act script read by the end of the day with in depth feedback on how to improve!

If you're interested in finding out more, follow the link to my job service forum post.

I look forward to hearing from you! =D

u-fido-u Jun 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
If it is qualified for mature content, put it in that folder. :) It's for any category. Thank you for asking!
