The purpose of Writers-and-Editors is to encourage writers through friendly critique.
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!
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.
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.
Currently there are no submission limits.
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
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.
If you are looking for a critic or wish to be one, please comment on this blog entry!
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.
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.
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.
Critiquing is encouraged. Being mean, rude, biased, offensive or a general is not. You will be warned for offensive conduct. If it continues, we may block you from the group.
Please critique or comment on submitted works! The goal of Writers-and-Editors is to help each other improve.
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.
