Hi there! :wave: Do you love fantasy? Do you love sci fi? Do you love literature? Then this is the place for you! We are a group where all you fantasy and sci fi authors out there can post your work.

We aim to gain exposure for our wonderful members, and to help them to get and to give reviews on their writing.
If this sounds like the group for you, simply click the 'Join' button in this page. Once we accept your request, you're in. Simple as that! :D

Our Founder

:iconthe-magic-within:
The group's founder is the one that has the final say on submissions, and keeps the group running. If you have any queries about the group, you should either send a note, or get in contact with the founder.

Our Moderators

Our moderators are responsible for reviewing submissions, voting on pieces before they can be accepted into the group. You may well come across them during your time in the group, so give them love.

Our Critique Team

If you want critique, then feel free to submit to our Critique Folder. However, we do have a 3/month limit, so try not to exceed this. If you do submit to this folder, your submission will be dealt with by our delightful Critique Team, so if you need some help, don't be shy. :D

:iconladynilstria: :iconamaranthine-eternity: :icontenshinoshin: :iconsolanova: :iconhoneythorns:

We are always looking for dedicated critiquers to join us, so if you're interested in becoming part of our critique team there are two ways to apply. If you are not yet a member of the group, you can join as a critiquer, however we would ask that you explain why you would like the position in your join request. If you are already a group member, then you can send a note to the group explaining the same.

Writing Friends

This is an invite only position, that holds no responsibility to the group. Those in this role receive special privileges, such as automatic acceptance for submissions, the occasional feature and access to the admin area. Generally, those in this role will either have formerly helped to admin the group in some way, won a contest in which it was listed as a prize, or had at least fifteen pieces accepted into the group.

Favourites

We have three folders in our favourites - featured, which is for all favourites, previous picture prompts, for images that have been featured in our prompts, and helpful pieces, for works that can be of use to our members when writing.
If you want to submit a favourite, feel free. In all likelihood it will be accepted (except in previous picture prompts) so long as it relates to the group's theme (literature and/or fantasy and sci fi).
There is just one rule for submission into favourites and that is that you must not suggest your own work. We will only accept suggestions if you are suggesting the work of other people.

Guidelines

:bulletred: Submissions must be literature.
:bulletred: No fanfic. (Apologies to all you fanfic writers, but we would prefer original works.)
:bulletred: Submissions must have elements of fantasy and/or science fiction.
:bulletred: No prohibited content. Mature content such as scenes of extreme violence or sexual content will be accepted, so long as it stays within the rules set by dA, and has an appropriate mature content warning on it.
:bulletred: All work must be your own.
:bulletred: Please submit to the appropriate folder.
:bulletred: Please do not try to exceed folder submission limits (which can be seen above).
:bulletred: We will only accept works written in English. I'm sorry if this affects you, but we don't have the ability to monitor submissions in foreign languages.
:bulletred: We will accept visual poetry (note if clarification is needed on this).
:bulletred: Pieces must be submitted to a Literature Gallery as a text submission (not written in the author's comments).
:bulletred: Please be polite, and respectful of the group and its members.

All submissions and join requests will be reviewed before they are accepted, so don't be alarmed if there isn't an immediate response to your request. :aww:
Happy writing. :typerhappy:

"Beta Buddies"

For many serious writers, an important part of improvement is detailed feedback. But, as I'm sure we've all found, it is not so easy to come by. Therefore, we present to you the "Beta Buddy" feature.

Opt into this feature, and you will be randomly paired with another member who has also signed up. Each pair will then become "Beta Buddies", which basically means that they will be each others' beta reader (someone who reads over drafts in order to provide detailed feedback).

For more information on this feature, please look here.

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,
Fabiana

Hi!
I'm currently running a contest for writers and I was hoping this group could perhaps help me spread the word about it? It focuses on getting and giving feedback to writers so it's a great opportunity for writers to get feedback on their works. I'm also giving way 1000 points for this contest. All the info can be found here: fav.me/d73jscd

Thanks for admitting me. I've dropped a piece in quickly in Fantasy Chapters. I hope you all like it once it gets posted.
