A Slice of Awesome.

Here are some poems that I personally feel deserve some attention. I enjoy sifting through the poetry submitted by you members, but there are only some that truly pull at the heart strings. I think these are perfect examples of these "some."

"Plead For Release," by ImmortalizedLies…

"Dark Wishes," by Golden-Leaves…

"Merely a Snail," by HamsterRawr…

Happy Writing,

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.
