Some important details

We have multiple folders because of how many members we have/submissions sent in every day, so let me know ASAP if any of them reach their size limit so another one will be made for the group's convenience

I personally don't have the time to host any more contests in this group; if another mod wants to be in charge of hosting one, feel free to organize one--don't forget to check out our affiliates' news journal for news of their contests (and more info about applying to them if you're interested in any of their available positions)

If anyone needs help/has any further questions not in our answered in our FAQ, please feel free to note the group or leave a comment on the front page :)~RaineDrops18

Frequently Asked Questions

(edit: nothing new, just trying to see if this will move to the front page of our group. Though if anyone has any more questions feel free to ask right now :))

:bulletred: What are the rules?

You can read them here: Rules and How to Submit

:bulletblue: Why can't I submit to "Featured"?

-Our featured folder is full (apparently, that's possible :'D), please submit it to "Featured 2", "Featured 3" or another folder we have available. (If certain folders get full, please let us know and we'll make more.)

:bulletred: How are winners of your contests determined?

-Through voting.

:bulletblue: Will you affiliate with ____?

-Sure, just send us a request!

:bulletred: Can I submit more than just poetry?

-Yes, prose, short stories, etc.; other types of literature are fine.

:bulletblue: I submitted my work under the wrong folder!

-You can edit your deviation and remove it from the group, and resubmit it to the right category, or tell us and we'll move it for you.

:bulletred: Does the group have a Twitter/facebook/etc.?

-We have a  Twitter account, possible facebook page coming soon\.

:bulletblue: How do I link to this group in my journal/ID/etc.?
- : devlooselacespoetry : or : iconlooselacespoetry : without the spaces, LooseLacesPoetry, :iconlooselacespoetry: Also works for linking to other deviants as well)

:bulletred: Why is there a limit on how much I can submit?

-Since we have many members (and our size keeps growing steadily), we need to set a limit so we don't overwhelm everyone's inboxes too much. You can submit to our Favorites gallery if you wish, but there is a limit on that as well. People who are members of our affiliates can submit as well.

:bulletblue: "Thank you for the invite/request."

You're welcome :'D

:bulletred: I left the group--Why am I still getting submissions in my inbox?

Please check your watchlist ( and remove us from there as well.

:bulletblue: "_____ is a good writer, you should check out their stuff." Ask them to check out our group and affiliates and send a join-request =)

:bulletred: "You should have a folder for ____"… Feel free to suggest any folders you would like to see added to the group.

:bulletblue: When is the next contest?

The start of a next contest after another one will have varying times, depending on how busy all our admin's schedules are, though our affiliates might be hosting contests in the meantime and sometimes more often that you can enter in the meantime:…

:bulletred: Can I become a contributor/co-founder?

Note our founder sasukeongofreak if you're interested.


Hope these help, more to come/be answered as needed. Leave a comment on our page or send a note if you need more help with anything.

Thank you so much for adding one of my pieces to your collection, I really appreciate it!

I'm sorry if I spammed you with too much stuff at once, I just lost all self-control when I saw that you didn't have a daily limit of total posts. If there's any maximum amount that I should post in a day tell me, because I've been bored recently, and when I'm bored I write A LOT. :3
RaineDrops18 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2014
Actually there is a limit per folder, but it should automatically stop you after a certain amount b/c we have so many members but other than that we don't do any prescreening on our submissions. Nothing wrong with being active, don't forget to check out our affiliates too :'D

Good afternoon,
This Group is full of very talented Writers! I offer you the opportunity to spread the word and translate your poetry/prose. Thus, your art will become more comprehensible even for people who don't speak English very well. I am a university student of Translation and Interpreting, so if you're interested in translating your art, feel free to contact me. I can translate into French, Italian and Spanish.
Best wishes,
RaineDrops18 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2014
Sounds interesting, we do have an 'international' folder that allows members to submit in other languages, maybe contact some of the writers there and offer your services?

I have a little book series I'm working on but I don't know if its ok to post some of the chapters.A average count of characters I have is about 4000-5000 characters(With Spaces)and I don't know if that's to long if it is actually expectable. 
RaineDrops18 Featured By Owner May 27, 2014
It's fine, we're pretty relaxed on rules, as long as it's something DA wouldn't remove it should be good to be in our group (can't guarantee that members will wanna read every chapter but there's probably groups specifically for whole series/books by people if you want to get an audience there)
SlimeCloudBeta Featured By Owner May 29, 2014  New member
Thank you.I'll only post one and maybe the intro and I'll see how it goes.
