|Hi there! 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!
Each piece submitted must be categorised correctly, according to our available folders. These folders also have a submission limit, which can be seen below.
Fantasy - Short Stories - Submission limit: 3/week
Sci Fi - Short Stories - Submission limit: 5/week
Sci Fi - Chapters - Submission limit: 5/week
Fantasy - Chapters - Submission limit: 2/week

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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Submissions must be literature.
No fanfic. (Apologies to all you fanfic writers, but we would prefer original works.)
Submissions must have elements of fantasy and/or science fiction.
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.
All work must be your own.
Please submit to the appropriate folder.
Please do not try to exceed folder submission limits (which can be seen above).
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.
We will accept visual poetry (note if clarification is needed on this).
Pieces must be submitted to a Literature Gallery as a text submission (not written in the author's comments).
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.

Angels Acting outAngels walk among us. At least that's what they tell us in legends. We don't see them, we don't hear them, we don't feel them, and we don't know who they are even if we did recognize them, till now. They call themselves the "Angel Callers." Angel Callers have the uncanny ability to sense and track angels. Every 100 years it is their duty to find angels remaining here on Earth to ensure all heavenly beings are present for the Rising.Angels Acting out by nytwing807
The street is filled with people walking to and from work and their homes. No one talks, not even for an "excuse me" it's as if all humankind became robots programmed for just work. They all look like schools of fish going the same way, stopping the same place, leading with the same foot, wearing the same fashion to say the least. Except for him, he who stands in the midst of it all, he who walks a few paces slower than the crowd, stopping every now and then, restarting, and looking around. The cycle repeats itself silently. Instead of the black and white m
Flying With The WindThe Thought Weavers say that our land Fla Silex was created when the Sky Lord Damask, angered with his flirtatious wife, drove his fist into the heart of the Verven Mountains, leaving a flat plain across which his rage still echoes in the Northerly winds. They say my race was born from the blood that seeped between his fingers. Dark blood, to make a dark-skinned people. The Fla Tel.Flying With The Wind by MetalMagpie
Then again, the Thought Weavers say a lot of things. An old proverb amongst my race goes, 'A wise man listens to a woman, but only a fool uses both ears'. The Thought Weavers are the most powerful women in my world, but they are still women. And all women have motives.
I was questioning those motives on the morning my clan's Weaver sent me to the borderlands. Jistil was young for her station back then - barely seventeen high-suns - and she'd been younger still the day she put the hooks in my mouth for my manhood ceremony; the day I was reborn as a warrior.
Some said she was the most talented Weaver for nine
A little history of ThleinaIt all began with an electrical storm of fire, water and mist in the Sea of Sorrow. Humans from another world came like Aliens to an alien land, and with them, their technologies of pollution and destruction.A little history of Thleina by GF-110
The Elves inhabiting the Ancient continent of Thleina had dwelled there for the last 250,000 years, much longer than any of the new comers to fathom. Yet knowing the humans werent here by choice and understood that these refugees had no where else to go, they gave up a piece of land for them, the island of Sinhara which spanned hundreds of miles side to side which housed animals of all kinds and woods stretching for almost eternity.
The skies turned dark as the woods burned, animals slaughtered, land defiled by unholy technologies; the council of elders was summoned at Thleinas Capital to address the growing concern of the human aliens, but no actions were taken. Thus they tolerated the destruction of the once beautiful island of Sinhara.

My Beloved CreationCome away from the windowMy Beloved Creation by eden-paradox
and sit down on a Golden Throne
Under the graying Trees.
Let me hold your head against my chest
While I whisper songs of Persephone and Hades,
and watch my Siren song rake its hands across
Your chiseled features of jagged stone.
The dust from your body swirling beneath my breath
To settle in my carved, ivory lungs.
Sleep beneath my eyes and never know
You are in Danger. You see,
The Devil courted me today; promised me great things;
and gave me an Apple, so that I might sign my name into it's red flesh...
But, I am no one's perfect statue, and neither are you, not anymore.

Androids lifeIt's dark everywhere you look. The same dream plays over and over again. The one where the humans and androids lived together without any problems. None of us going absolete and getting destroyed to rebuild another one. An alarm goes off, it's time to wake up. Light pours into your artifically hazel eyes. A stage of waking up is removing all the plugs that help you charge and recieve a human life style. The dreams are mixed with human memories and artifical memories. The androids of this time have human qualitiies like artifical hair, eyes and skin. Wires and hard drives instead of bones and brains. Outside the sun shines bright and robot birds sing. Androids and humans using hoverboards to go places. Houses using the sun for power durring the day. Life for an android is rough, our kind killing each other for parts and entertainment. Luckly you're a humandoid, part human and part android, your life is easy. No one can kill you because of your human side. You can do whatever you want buAndroids life by C-Nicole-Schwinn
|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.
Publishing ScamsCopied and pasted from my blog since deviantART's been having this problem for a while now. I had meant to post something on this matter back in October since it was when I noticed more and more "publishers" like this popping up on the site, but never got around to it. Of course, with all of these unprofessional publishers coming out of the woodwork again recently, I thought I'd share what I shared on my blog here.
What is a scam publisher?
Essentially, a scam publisher is a press that cheats authors into believing that they are getting traditionally published by their rules and guidelines. However, if you read the fine print, you'll see that "traditionally" publishing you is not at all what's happening. This can range from promising royalties which never come, making you pay a fee to be published, or even stem from lack of professionalism. While the term "scam" usually means forcing you to pay, there are many other
